GP Extended Hours

Improved Access Service

This service is currently suspended due to Covid

Evening and weekend access to GP appointments

Patients registered with the majority of GP Practices in Crawley can now access evening and weekend GP appointments (from 1 October 2018). Patients can attend evening and weekend appointments at a primary care hub in the town. The service was designed by NHS Crawley CCG, working in partnership with local patients and clinicians. The hubs are run by for Better Care Ltd, the local GP Federation. How to book into the hubs The GP hubs offer both routine and urgent appointments which can be booked through the patient’s own GP practice in the normal way, during normal opening hours. Clinicians working the hubs will be able to access a patient’s medical with your agreement.

Patients will be asked before any information is shared and can decline if they wish. Your help to design this new service In preparation for this additional, improved access to GP care we sought the views and experiences of local patients and the public through a survey, shared at the end of last year. The results of this survey can be here www.crawleyccg.nhs.uk/news/your-views-on-evening-andweekend-access-to-gp-services/

We are committed to providing all Crawley residents with improved GP access, offering more appointments at times convenient for all patients in the near future. Out of hours care If you need health help now out of service hours, patients can access GP urgent care by telephoning 111. In addition, the Urgent Treatment Centre at Crawley Hospital continues to provide health help for minor injuries and illness.
