Weekend and Evening Appointments – a step towards 7 day access to GP services
In association with our neighboring Practices we are able to offer additional weekend and evening appointments, in addition to our current normal extended hours till 8pm on a Tuesday and Thursday for both GP and Nurse appointments.
The additional Weekend and Evening appointments are known as “Neighbourhood Access Hub Extended Hours Appointments” and are an extension to the in-day “Hub” appointments that all the practices share for some same day urgent cases they may have. If you are offered an appointment here, this will be with the Hub GP and not your Practice GP.
Hub Extended Hours Appointments are mainly staffed by the local practices who have a weekly rota to be the duty practice to offer both GP and Nurse/Health Care Assistant appointments to all patients in the area. If offered this appointment you will be seen by the Duty Practice GP or Nurse/HCA during the week and the Hub GP at weekends. Evening appointments are 6.30pm – 8.00pm, and weekend appointments are in the morning.
GP appointments become available 48 hrs before, and the Nurse/HCA appointments 3 weeks before. Currently these Hub Extended Hours Appointments can only be booked through Reception and not online. There are some restrictions on what can be seen if the appointment is not your usual practice, so please check with our Reception.
Saturday morning: Hub – held at the Bicester Health Centre and/or in Gosford Surgery(Kidlington) – GP appointments only at weekends
Sunday morning: Hub – held at the Banbury Health Centre – GP appointments only at weekends.
