As part of the government’s pledge to provide a 7 day NHS they have proposed a pilot scheme which will provide additional access to GP surgeries for patients during evenings and at weekends. GP practices across South East Oxfordshire will be working as a collective to provide the additional out-of-hours appointments each week.
PLEASE NOTE: These appointments will be aimed at routine GP care and will NOT replace the current urgent 111 service. If you require an urgent GP appointment when your surgery is closed then you will still need to call 111.
Each surgery will be providing services at different times and on different days, however, you may be offered an available slot at ANY of the participating surgeries. If you give your consent then the clinician who sees you will have access to view your medical record.
Please note that if you feel an onward referral to a specialist or any further investigations may be required, then it may be better to arrange an appointment with your own doctor, however, this is not essential.
Due to the nature of these appointments we would ask that patients try and limit their queries to one problem only.
This pilot scheme is due to run from January 2017 until the end of March 2018. After this initial period the success of the pilot will be assessed and a decision made whether to continue the service.
