IMPROVED ACCESS APPOINTMENTS
In addition to the practice’s normal opening hours, you can also book an appointment to see a local clinician in the evenings or on Saturday and Sunday at locations across South Worcestershire.
GP practices are working together to provide Improved Access appointments to our patients. This means that your Improved Access appointment may be with a different GP, nurse or based in a different location or practice than you are used to, and some of these appointments are telephone only.
These appointments are pre-bookable by contacting the surgery during our opening times – when calling please ask for an Improved Access appointment and our receptionists will help you to find a convenient appointment.
Alternatively you can now call a dedicated number direct to book an appointment 01905 789061. This line is open weekdays 6.30 - 8pm and weekends 8 - 12am.

If you are unable to attend an appointment you have booked, please let us know. We can then offer that appointment to someone else who may need it.
OUR APPOINTMENT SYSTEM
We changed our appointment system on 19th September 2016 to create more opportunity for you to book ahead to see your preferred GP, and help us prioritise patients with clinically urgent issues to be seen the same day.
When requesting an appointment, it's helpful to provide an indication what the appointment is for. This helps us ensure you see the most appropriate clinician and your needs are prioritised appropriately.
