People registered with a GP or a resident in Kensington and Chelsea, Queen’s Park and Paddington to benefit from improved extended hours GP services
It is now easier for people registered with a GP or a resident in Kensington and Chelsea, Queen’s Park, and Paddington to make GP and nurse appointments at a time that suits them. This includes evenings, weekends and bank holidays.
West London Clinical Commissioning Group has worked with practices to support GPs and nurses to offer extra appointments seven days a week. These appointments are in addition to existing GP and nurse services, and are available at the following times:
- Monday to Friday: 6.00pm-9.00pm
- Saturday and Sunday: 8.00am-8.00pm
- Bank holidays: 9.00am-1.00pm.This is a really exciting time for our patients as they can now pre-book GP and nurse appointments seven days a week, at a time and in a place that is convenient for them.This means that anyone registered with a GP or a resident in Kensington and Chelsea, Queen’s Park, and Paddington can access these appointments, which can be booked at your local GP practice, or by calling NHS 111 when your GP practice is closed.
Dr Fiona Butler, Chair of West London CCG said: “Our aim is to make GP services quicker, safer and accessible to all, especially for parents, carers and people with work commitments. We are really pleased to announce that patients will now benefit from more accessible GP services. Previously, patients told us that they were concerned about the lack of access to GP and nurse appointments. Offering evening and weekend appointments helps to tackle this.”
For more information or to book an appointment with a GP or nurse please contact your local GP practice or call NHS 111.
