Improving access to general practice: evening and weekend appointments now available
As you may know, residents in Westminster now have access to GP and practice nurse appointments from 6.30pm-8.00pm, Monday to Friday and from 8.00am-8.00pm, Saturday and Sunday.
These new extended hours are in addition to existing GP services, meaning that residents can now access GP appointments from 8.00am-8.00pm seven days a week through their own GP practice and extended access hubs across NW London.
Patients can pre-book these extended access appointments by contacting their GP practice to book an appointment or by calling NHS 111 when their own practice is closed.
The extended access hubs and the appointment times they offer are as follows:
Monday to Friday: 6.30pm-8.00pm. Saturday and Sunday: 8am-4pm
Pimlico Health at the Marven:
Monday to Friday: 6.30pm-8.00pm. Saturday and Sunday: 10am-6pm
Westbourne Green Surgery:
Monday to Friday: 6.30pm-8.00pm. Saturday and Sunday: 12pm-8pm
