Enhanced Access

Posted by: marcia - Posted on:

General practice is here for you for longer as routine appointments become available on evenings and weekends.

Our practice is working together to offer patients evening and weekend appointments.

From 1 October Swinton Primary Care Networks, groups of General Practices working together to deliver key health and care services, will be increasing access to pre-bookable, routine appointments at evenings and weekends.

Enhanced access appointments may include services like cervical screening, childhood vaccination clinics and health checks. People will be able to see a member of the general practice team, a GP, nurse or other health professional.

The appointments offered via enhanced access will be held at The Lakes Medical Centre and may be with a different clinician than usual. This clinician will have access to your health records and will be able to treat you in the same way as we would.

You can access these appointments via our reception team.
