We are very pleased to announce that from October 2022, Medway Peninsula will have the option of providing additional appointments for our patients. We know this is something you have been asking for and we are keen to see how we can improve access for our patients.
Under our current contract we provide GP services from 08:00-18:30 Monday to Friday. Additional hours at weekends are currently provided by your local GP practice however this new contract will double the number of those extra appointments. These extra appointments will be accessible through your normal GP practice booking systems but the appointments availability will be between 6.00 – 8.00pm Monday to Friday and between 09.00 and 5.00pm Saturdays.
We expect this to be a welcoming enhancement to the existing services your GP practice provides. Our hope is to provide these services more locally than some other centralised services but it may not be delivered at all surgery sites.
Our initial plans have been submitted to our commissioners and we have begun to consult with our patients through practice Patient Participation Groups. However, we would welcome your thoughts on the types of appointments that you feel is needed from the new service.
