CCGs are required by NHS England to provide extended access to GP services, including at evenings and weekends, for their population.
On 1st October 2018, phase one of the Improving Access to General Practice service began introducing 7 day access to GP services in St Helens with pre-bookable appointments outside normal surgery hours.
On Monday 26th November 2018, phase 2 of the service began which increased the number of locations offering appointments outside of normal surgery hours to three, with the fourth location preparing to go live in January 2019.
This service increases residents’ access to routine GP and Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) appointments on evenings and weekends. Appointments are pre-bookable by your registered GP practice.
However, the appointments will not be with your regular GP or Advanced Nurse Practitioner and will be at ‘hubs’ across St Helens with a GP or ANP who will have access to the same health records as your regular GP.
