Public reminded that evening and weekend GP appointments are available

People in the Black Country are being reminded that GP appointments are now available during evenings and weekends.

The ‘enhanced access’ service provides patients with access to pre-bookable appointments between 6.30pm and 8.00pm (Monday to Friday) and between 9.00am and 5.00pm (Saturdays) to ensure that people can get the right care when it’s convenient for them.

To book an appointment during these hours, people should contact their GP practice by phone or visit their practice website. An appointment may be offered at their registered GP surgery or another location.

Appointments will be delivered by multidisciplinary teams, including GPs, nurses and other healthcare professionals. There will be a choice of ways to access appointments depending on clinical need, including face to face and remote appointments via telephone or online. Dr Mohit Mandiratta, a local GP in the Black Country, said:

“We know that some of our patients struggle to access appointments during the day and prefer later or weekend appointments to fit in with their busy schedules and family commitments.

“It’s great that we’re now able to offer evening and weekend appointments to all patients so they can choose an appointment time that works for them. To book, simply contact your GP practice as normal.

“Appointments may not be at your usual practice, but if you talk to a receptionist, they will help you find the right service and at a time that is convenient.”
