What is the CGPC Enhanced Access service?

You have a choice of 5 hubs you can be booked into for a GP or nurse appointment between 6.30pm and 8pm Mondays to Friday, 5 hubs on a Saturday (between 8am to 8pm depending on which hub you select), and 2 hubs on Sunday (between 8am and 4pm depending on which hub you select).

How do I get an appointment?

GP and Nurse appointments can be booked by your own Practice up to two weeks in advance. The Doctors and Nurses you will see may not be your own so you will be asked to provide consent for them to view your medical records before an appointment will be given. If you are seeing the Nurse for dressings, you must take the dressings your Practice has prescribed you as they may not have the ones you require. Please note: - this is not a walk-in service for Urgent Care.

 

How do I cancel an appointment?

If you are unable to attend your appointment it is important you let us know so we can offer the appointment to someone else. You can cancel your appointment by informing your own Practice during their normal opening hours or alternatively calling the hubs directly.

 

What happens after my appointment if I need a follow-up or further care?

Your registered GP Practice and the Enhanced Access Service are linked electronically so that after your consultation a discharge summary will be sent. The management of any follow-up, onward referral or further medical care will remain with your registered GP Practice.
