Evening and Weekend Appointments

Note;  the following information is likely to be subject to change during the coronavirus pandemic.

As part of the Government’s pledge to provide a 7 day NHS a pilot scheme was introduced in 2017 to provide additional access to patients during evenings and at weekends. The GP practices across South East Oxfordshire (shown in map) work as a collective to provide the recommended number of these additional routine, pre-bookable appointments each week.

A patient from any of these SE Oxfordshire surgeries may be booked into any of these appointment slots.  If you are not registered at the surgery where you wish to see a GP or nurse you will have to give that clinician specific permission to access your medical records on a one-off basis.  These appointments must be booked by the practice you are registered at. Pick up a leaflet in reception for more information.

PLEASE NOTE :

These appointments are aimed at routine GP care and do NOT replace the current urgent 111 service. If you require an urgent GP appointment when your surgery is closed then you still need to call 111. This service is NOT for emergencies or walk-in appointments and you will be directed to call NHS 111 in these cases.

Each surgery provides services at different times and on different days; however you will be able to book into an available slot at ANY of the participating surgeries. If you consent then the clinician who sees you will have access to your private medical record. Please note that if you feel an onward referral to a specialist or any further investigations may be required, then it may be better to arrange an appointment with your own doctor; however, this is not essential.

Due to the nature of these appointments we would ask that patients try and limit their queries to one problem only.

This was initially a pilot scheme so we cannot guarantee it will always be available but it certainly will for the foreseeable future.

Note; “Watlington” denotes either Chiltern (Watlington) or Brook (Chalgrove) Surgeries, but not both.  Check to find which one is actually open on a relevant day.
