Improved Access at Evenings/Weekends
On the 1st October 2018 Improved Access was launched nationwide and you can now see a GP or other healthcare professional during:

  • weekday evenings between 6.30pm and 8.00pm
  • Saturdays and Sundays

These appointments offered could be:

  • at your registered practice
  • another local GP practices
  • another local NHS service - such as a General Practice Hub

 
What type of appointments will be available?
Evening appointments between 6.30pm – 8pm Monday to Friday will be offered by a practice in your area. These appointments will be offered by a range of clinical professionals.
On Saturdays, a clinical professional will be available between 9.00 am to 12.00 pm.
On Sundays and Bank Holidays a GP will be available between 9.00 am to 12.30 pm (at a hub in Tonbridge or Maidstone).
 
Who can book these appointments?
Improved Access appointments are available for all patients registered with a west Kent practice. However, it will be unlikely that you will be seen by your normal GP and it is likely that you will have to go to a different surgery to your registered practice for these appointments.
 
How can I book an appointment? 
In order to book these appointments, you contact your surgery reception staff as normal. You will not be able to phone the reception staff on Saturdays, Sundays / Bank Holidays or between 6.30 pm to 8.00 pm Monday to Friday.
