Improving Access service
Working together, we’ve made GP practice appointments available in the evenings and at weekends for people living in York and Pocklington.
This service is available to patients registered at 13 GP practices across the area and is delivered at our seven surgery ‘hub sites’. It was created in response to feedback from patients who had previously struggled to get face-to-face or telephone appointments at their GP practice during the working day and means that we can offer more appointments between 6.30pm and 8pm on weekdays, as well as additional slots at weekends and bank holidays.
Appointments are available with a range of clinicians, including GPs, nurses, primary care practitioners and other healthcare professionals. Patients may not see or speak to their usual doctor or nurse, but the clinicians are from local practices, wherever possible.
This service is provided by a number of GP Practice hubs in York and Pocklington.
