Appointments in evenings and at weekends


The NHS is required to provide "improved access" to appointments at GP practices by September 2018, which means more appointments in the evenings and at weekends.


This will not mean every GP practice will open 8am-8pm weekdays and at weekends.  In Norwich it will almost certainly mean additional appointments are offered at three locations in the city.  


There are many details for us to agree yet, for example the number of appointments available and the type of professional available. There may be appointments to see nurses, physiotherapists, mental health workers or clinical pharmacists as well as doctors,  just as there is in the daytime.
