GP extended opening hours

A number of GP surgeries are opening their clinics for longer to help patients gain access in a timely and convenient way.

Many patients in the area will now have access to their GP at evenings and at weekends. Some practices will be staying open until 8pm during the week, others will be offering appointments for Saturday and Sunday mornings. 

To find out if your local surgery is participating in the scheme, contact them directly.

If you need help finding your practice or their contact details, please use the links located on our GP member practices page. 

Make the most of your local pharmacy

Your local high street pharmacy can provide a range of essential health services, from dispensing prescriptions to providing health and lifestyle advice.

Pharmacists can provide expert advice and treatment for a range of common illnesses and complaints, without you having to wait for a GP appointment or visit a hospital accident and emergency or urgent care service.

Many pharmacies also have consultation rooms where you can speak to a pharmacist in private for confidential advice or treatment.

Visit the NHS Choices website to find a local pharmacy near you, including details of their location, services and opening times.

Or visit our 'Minor Ailments Scheme' page to learn about receiving treatment without visiting a GP.
