New GP weekend service in Knowsley

by Laura Johnston

Patients registered with a GP in Knowsley are now able to make appointments later in the evening and during the weekend.

Services based at Nutgrove Villa in Huyton and Kirkby St Chad’s Health Centre are available for weekend and weekday daytime and evening appointments. In addition, Halewood Primary Care Resource Centre and Whiston Primary Care Resource Centre are open during the week with appointments available up to 8pm.

It is hoped that this additional service will support people who work throughout the week. As well as this benefit, if your practice is fully booked for the day, you can also book same day appointments at the above locations. To use the service, contact your GP practice and ask about Extended Access.

It is hoped that the extended hours will help to reduce admissions to A&E or calls to the Ambulance Service.

GP appointments will also be available during Bank Holidays. In order to book one of these appointments please speak to your GP practice during their normal opening hours or call the NHS on 111.
