GP+ South Warwickshire GP+ Extended Access Service
Patients across South Warwickshire are to be offered evening and weekend appointments thanks to a new service, called GP+, being provided by the South Warwickshire GP Federation (SWGP).
Patients in South Warwickshire will be able to book face-to-face or telephone appointments at six GP+ "hubs" from 6-9pm on weekdays and 9am-1pm on weekends.
Routine and same day appointments will be offered with GPs, nurses and clinical pharmacists. In addition there will be same day appointments from 6-9pm on weekdays for children aged 0-16 who need treatment after school hours.
South Warwickshire GP+ now runs from six accessible hub locations, Trinitiy Court Surgery in Stratford-upon-Avon, Waterside Medical Cetnre in Leamington Spa, Castle Medical Centre in Kenilworth, Southam Surgery in Southam, Hastings House Surgery in Wellsbourne and Arrow Surgery in Alcester. The hubs will be staffed by GPs and nurses from local GP practices, with some specialist roles recruited specifically for the new service.
GP+ clinicians will have access to patient records, so that the patient's full medical history is known and records can be updated regardless of when or where patients are seen (subject to consent).
Appointments for the extended access service can be booked via the practice.
