Improved Access at evenings and 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 8pm
  • Saturdays and Sundays

These appointments offered could be:

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

What type of appointments will be available?

Evening appointments between 6.30pm and 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 9am and 12pm.

On Sundays and Bank Holidays a GP will be available between 9am and 12.30pm (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 6.30pm and 8pm Monday to Friday.
