Patients across South Warwickshire have access to evening and weekend appointments thanks to a new service, called GP+, being provided by the South Warwickshire GP Federation (SWGP).
Patients in South Warwickshire are able to book face-to-face or telephone appointments at six GP+ ‘hubs’ from 6-9pm on weekdays and 9am-1pm on weekends.
Routine and same day appointments will be offered with GPs, nurses and clinical pharmacists. In addition there will be same day appointments from 6-9pm on weekdays for children aged 0-16 who need treatment after school hours.
South Warwickshire GP+ run from six centrally located and accessible hub locations, Trinity Court Surgery in Stratford-upon-Avon, Waterside Medical Centre in Leamington Spa, Castle Medical Centre in Kenilworth, Alcester Primary Care Centre in Alcester, Southam Surgery in Southam and Hastings House Medical Centre in Wellesbourne. The hubs will be staffed by GPs and nurses from local GP practices, with some specialist roles recruited specifically for the new service.
GP+ clinicians will have access to patient records, so that the patient’s full medical history is known and records can be updated regardless of when or where patients are seen (subject to consent).
Appointments for the extended access service can be booked via the practice.
