WEST CAMBRIDGESHIRE FEDERATION
Evening and weekend appointments – giving you more choice!
GP Practices in this area are making it easier for you to make ROUTINE appointments at times which suit you.
From 1st October 2018, in addition to our usual late night surgery at Papworth on a Monday evening, we will be taking part in a new scheme to allow you to make appointments every evening between 6-30-8-30 pm and on a Saturday and Sunday morning between 8-30 am -12-30 pm.
The extra appointments will be offered at 4 local surgeries, detailed below, and staffed by a variety of clinicians from across the area.
PLEASE NOTE: The new extended opening hours is NOT a walk-in service, so you will need to make an appointment. These are intended to be ROUTINE appointments, rather than for ‘urgent’ matters.
Contact our usual reception team, during our normal surgery hours, and they will be able to see what appointments are available to book. You will not be able to book these online yourself.
The service will offer….
- GP appointments – routine only
- Nurse – pill checks, routine dressings, removal of stitches, B12 injection (but patient must bring the injection with them)
- HealthCare Assistant – blood pressure checks, height, weight, pulse and BMI
As the service grows we will be able to offer other appointment types.
If you need to cancel an appointment you should contact our receptionists at Papworth Surgery, during normal surgery hours. We will then relay the message to the Extended Access team. If you need to cancel after Papworth Surgery closes, then please ring the number details below. Please note your call will only be answered during the Extended Access surgery times and you cannot ring the surgeries on their usual surgery number as they don’t have access to the Extended Access appointments.
