What is it? 

From October 2022 a new Enhanced Access service began to be delivered at a PCN level. 
This new service sees local GP Practices (Primary Care Networks) working together to offer patients evening and weekend appointments. This in turn means you are able to access a healthcare professional at a time more convenient for you. 
Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are required to provide Enhanced Access appointments between the hours of 6.30pm to 8pm Monday to Friday and between 9am – 5pm on a Saturday. As the Enhanced Access service is delivered at a PCN level – not every practice will be open during those hours. 


Our Enhanced Access clinics are delivered from one central location on a Saturday – Two Steeples Medical Centre. There is also a mixture of remote consultation and face to face appointments available to all registered patients at each of the six practices within the PCN during weekday mornings before 8am and evenings after 6:30pm, with these appointments taking place during evenings and Saturdays. 
How can I book an appointment? 
Your GP practice will offer you an appointment at the PCN Enhanced Access if one is available with our range of healthcare professionals including remote GP, HCA, Nurses and Phlebotomists depending on your needs.
