We are keen to gather your views on GP appointments during evenings and weekends and we are launching a survey to get feedback about what you think of ‘GP Improved Access’ across the area.
The GP Improved Access service allows patients in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire to book evening and weekend appointments with a GP, practice nurse or other health professional.
Through the current GP Improved Access Service, appointments are available 7 days a week, including bank holidays and can be booked by calling your GP Practice. The appointments provided during evenings and weekends are in addition to the current opening times at your GP practice.
We’re now keen to hear your views about the service and how you access appointments on evenings and weekends. The results of the survey are important to us as they will help inform the development of the service in the future.
David Moss, Head of Primary Care Contracts for the CCG, said:
We are committed to improving access to primary care services so that more patients can see a health care professional at a time that suits them, particularly on evenings and weekends.
We want to ensure the service continues to meet people’s needs and are asking patients to complete this survey to give us their views on how the service works and how it could be improved.
The survey will run from 26th November 2019 to 29th February 2020.
