How do I get an appointment in the Extended Access?

Speak to the receptionist at your registered GP surgery, who will be able to book you an appointment.

Do you have access to my full medical record my surgery has?

At the point of booking the appointment with your surgery, you will be asked whether you agree to share your patient record so that the local clinicians at the GP Hubs are able to access your record and also share relevant information back to your Surgery. This is necessary so that the appropriate notes and referrals can be passed on to your surgery for follow-up actions. IT IS ESSENTIAL TO SHARE YOUR RECORD SO THAT THE CLINICIAN CAN PROVIDE APPROPRIATE CARE BASED ON YOUR FULL MEDICAL HISTORY. IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO SHARE, UNFORTUNATELY, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE SEEN WITHIN THE SERVICE.

What if I do not consent to sharing my medical record?

You will not be able to be seen by the GP Hub service. You will need to wait for the next available appointment at your registered GP surgery.

What are the opening times of the Extended Access Service?
