GP Services - Extended Access Survey 2017
Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) plan and buy healthcare services for the local population in your area. National funding is available from 2018 to improve access to GP services. This includes ensuring that everyone has more convenient access to GP services, including a mixture of same day and routine appointments on weekday evenings after 6.30pm, and at weekends based on local needs.
As local CCGs we are currently considering how best to deliver extended access in your area so that it meets the needs of our population, is realistically deliverable within the budget we have been allocated to provide this additional service. There is a national and local shortage of GPs and other clinicians who work in general practice. This means that extended access services could be provided at a venue other than your own surgery and that you may not see your own GP or even a GP from your usual practice. Should that GP need to access your medical records, your consent will be sought when you book the appointment. The CCGs would like to find out more about your views on extending access to GP services in the evenings and at weekends so pleases complete the survey via the link below. The survey will take around 5 minutes to complete and is anonymous.
The link to the survey is http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/GPExtendedAccessSurvey

Following a recent government change in the GP contract, we are now required to provide a named doctor for all of our patients over the age of 75 years.
As we work for a team, you may still ask for one of the other doctors in the practice, but your named doctor will take on the overall responsibility for your care.
We are in the process of contacting everyone over the age of 75 to inform them of their named GP, but if you have not been contacted or are unsure of your named GP please ask at reception.
