Improved Access to General Practice

GP practices in Eastern Cheshire are working together to give patients better access to healthcare services by offering additional routine appointments on weekday evenings and on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

You can access these appointments by ringing your local practice as usual and requesting an evening or weekend slot. The receptionist will then confirm the available times and locations.  The consultation may not be with your named GP, or in your usual practice, but they’ll still be able to access your GP record with your permission.

If you wish to book or cancel an appointment in the Improved Access service when your GP practice is closed, you can call 01625 264089 between 18:30 – 20:00 Monday to Friday and 09:00 – 12:00 on Saturdays and Sundays.

Please note that if you need urgent general practice advice when your usual GP surgery is closed you should ring 111. NHS111 will be able to arrange an urgent appointment with a GP if needed.
