Improved Access Service

Brockworth Surgery is now part of the North and South Gloucester Primary Care Network (NSG PCN); and together with its other practices, will now offer Improved Access Appointments at each of the surgeries.

These additional appointments will be available between 18:00 and 20:00 every weekday evening and on Saturday mornings. Patients registered with any participating GP surgery within the NSG PCN will be able to have an appointment at these extra clinics.

Improve Access GP Appointments

Our aim is to make it easier and more convenient for patients to see a GP by providing more appointments at certain surgeries across the area. These will be known as Improved Access Appointments. Patients can book to be seen regardless of which surgery they are registered at.

Who can be seen at an Improved Access Appointment

These appointments are for anyone with a new problem, such as tonsillitis or an ear infection, or with a long-term condition that has become worse, e.g. a chest/respiratory condition that has become worse and needs treating urgently.

They may also be used for routine consultations. However, if you have already seen your own GP about a problem, or the appointment is about a long-term condition, it may be better for you to continue to see your own GP. They will already know about your condition, including any tests or treatments you have received.

This service is not intended for second opinions. If that is what you would like, it is better to discuss it with your regular doctor.
