GP Improved Access (IA) Service – Extra GP Appointments on evenings and weekends
This is a national programme which has been introduced to make GP services available 7 days per week. It is intended to help with the ever growing demand for GP appointments and to provide patients who need it with evening and weekend access.
Appointments are available on a daily basis. Most of our GP appointments are telephone appointments, with some face to face where an issue needs physical examination. You can book every weekday, up until 8pm, on Saturdays between 8am and 5pm and on Sunday between 8am and 4pm. Nurse appointments are bookable most days at various practices in the area. You must be registered with a practice in Guildford and Waverley to use this service.
Your fastest option is to click the Book Now link below:
This will allow you to book with GPs and Nurses via our partner Hero Doctors. You will need to create an account, a very quick process, and then you will be able to search and book our available appointments. For a telephone appointment with a GP, please choose ‘Telephone Appointment’ in the list of locations you can see. You can also still book by calling your usual practice and asking to be seen in Improved Access. Appointments are released at different times so do keep checking if no availability is showing straightaway.
Improved Access appointments may be booked through Grayshott Surgery reception in the usual way. The appointments take place at a number of ‘hubs’:
- Fairlands, Guildford
- Villages, Send
- Merrow Park, Guildford
- Binscombe, Godalming
- The Mill Practice
Information sharing agreements are in place to ensure that practice records are available to the GP who is handling the appointment, giving a safe and innovative service. The record of the clinic appointment will also be available to the patients’ own GP.
