What is the Extended Access Service?
The Extended Access Service means that more appointments with GPs and Practice Nurses are now available to all patients registered in Bedfordshire. This will make it easier for you to get an appointment at a time that suits you, including evenings and weekends.
When are appointments available?
Appointments are now available to patients either pre-bookable and on the day from 6.30pm– 8.00pm Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Then 6.30pm—9.30pm Wednesday and Friday. Saturday is 8.30am—12.30pm, with pre-booked telephone consultations available on Sunday. During bank holidays appointments will be available 8.30am—12.30pm. If you need to see a GP or Practice Nurse during Extended Access times, the appointment may NOT be at your registered Practice and you may be seen by a clinician from another Practice. This is not a walkin service so patients need an appointment to be seen by a GP or Practice Nurse. Extended access appointments are in addition to normal Practice opening hours.
