To increase same day access for patients, an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) will be offering appointments on a Monday morning between 7 January and 18 February 2019. These appointments will be in addition to the appointments currently available with a GP.
The ANP will be able to prescribe medication as necessary, assess and treat minor illnesses and chronic diseases and refer into secondary care if appropriate. The ANP will have the support of the on call duty doctor if needed and we would encourage patients ringing for same day appointments on a Monday to request an appointment with the ANP.
As this is a pilot scheme, patients booking with the ANP will be asked to complete a short questionnaire at the end of their appointment.

* We do ask that patients refrain from calling the surgeries with general enquiries prior to 10.00am. We like to keep the early morning period free for requesting appointments and home visits.

Extended Access – Local GP practices working together to offer more convenient appointment times for patients
As from 1st October, 2018, we will be part of a network of practices (known as ‘hubs’) in Shropshire, working together to offer patients ‘Extended Access’ to pre-bookable appointments - in the evenings, at the weekend and during bank holidays.
Part of the national agenda by NHS England, Extended Access means patients will be able to make pre-bookable appointments to see a GP, practice nurse, or other qualified healthcare professional, at a time which may be more convenient for them.
In Shropshire local practices will work together in a network of ‘hubs’ to provide this service. The ‘hubs’ will take turns to provide the Extended Access appointments to patients. This means patients could be offered an appointment at a nearby practice in the local area (part of the hub). Patients will be advised about appointment location at time of booking, enabling them to make an informed choice about where and when they access care.
Locally the pre-bookable appointments will be available as follows:
- Weekday evenings (Monday to Friday)
between 6.30pm and 8pm (at a local area hub)
between 8am and 1pm (at a local area hub)
- Sundays and bank holidays
between 8.30am and 12.30pm (at a single site in central Shrewsbury)
Arranging a pre-bookable evening, weekend or bank holiday appointment is easy to do - patients simply need to contact us, during normal opening hours, and speak to the practice receptionist or a member of the practice team who will be able to help. Appointments may not be with your registered GP but will be with a GP or other qualified healthcare professional.
