Improving access to General Practice: evening and weekend appointments now available
Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see a GP or Nurse on weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) or at the weekends (on Saturday and Sunday). Appointments will either take place at this practice or at another NHS setting nearby. Talk to the practice receptionist to find out more or book an appointment.
By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to General Practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess

Think Pharmacy First
When you or your family are unwell, you may not always need to make an appointment to see your GP. Pharmacists are experts in the use of medicines and can provide you with free expert advice on the best treatment for a wide range of illnesses and minor ailments.
Pharmacy First allows Island residents who receive free prescriptions to go straight to their pharmacist to receive free treatment, for selected minor ailments, without needing to visit their GP to get a prescription first.
