Extra GP Appointments Available 

 

It is now even easier for people to make an appointment with a GP, thanks to a new national ‘extended access’ initiative, which will improve access to primary care services in North West Surrey.

This means, in addition to being able to book GP appointments at your local practice, you will also have access to additional appointments during the evenings and at weekends at four locations across the local area.

 

The extra appointments are being provided by the GP federation that brings together all 40 GP practices in the local area and is known as North West Surrey Integrated Care Services. 

 

By working together in a new and different way local GP practices will be improving access to primary care appointments, making it even easier for local people to get the care and advice they need, at a time that’s convenient to them.

These additional appointments will be available from 6-9pm on weekday evenings (including bank holidays) and from 9am to midday at weekends. Patients can book these appointments through their local GP practice.

As these extra appointments are provided from three GP surgeries in the area and The Bedser Hub in Woking, the GP or clinician will have access to your medical record, with your consent, giving them access to all the information they would need to provide the best possible care.

 

The additional appointments will be provided at the following locations – and patients in North West Surrey can book appointments at any of these sites:

 

The Red Practice – Walton Health Centre (Rodney Road, Walton-on-Thames, KT12 3LB)

Studholme Medical Centre (50 Church Road, Ashford, TW15 2TU)

Sunbury Health Centre (Green Street, Sunbury-on-Thames, TW16 6RH)

The Bedser Hub, Woking Community Hospital (Heathside Road, Woking, GU22 7HS)

 

Initially, these extra appointments will be provided by local GPs but from October there are plans to extend this service to also include nurse-led clinics, blood tests, physiotherapy assessments and digital consultations (which includes online face to face consultations via a patient smartphone).

Care Data

your care dataInformation about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care..

It is important that we, the NHS, can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. We would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help us provide a full picture. This will allow us to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so we can see what has worked best.

Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.

You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or download the opt out form below, complete it and return it to the practice

We need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choices you have.
