NHS take welcome measures to improve service

An NHS manager has been in touch with me asking to plug the availability of GPs which I am delighted to do per the below:-
"It would be really helpful if you could help us publicise the fact that same day urgent GP appointments are indeed available across our area via the late evening and weekend GP service, 7 days a week, as text below.


Same day urgent GP appointments
Anyone registered with a GP in our area can book an urgent appointment with the late evening/weekend GP service between 6.30pm and 10pm on weekdays, between 9am and 5pm on Saturdays and between 9am and 1pm on Sundays.
Patients can call the service directly on 020 3770 1888 between 2pm and 9pm on weekdays and 9am and 5pm on weekends for an appointment. Alternatively they can be booked in through their own GP or via NHS 111. All appointments must be booked in advance, you can’t walk in or turn up on the day without an appointment.

This Easter
This Easter bank holiday even more urgent appointments will be available to help keep A&E free for those who really need it. On Good Friday and Easter Monday urgent GP appointments will be available between 1pm and 4pm, on Easter Sunday appointments are available 11am-2.30pm, and 11am and 5pm on Saturday 26 March. To book an urgent, same day appointment call 020 3770 1888. Find out more

We have a full page advert in all the local papers this week but anything you can do to help spread the word would be very much appreciated.”

  1. This is a positive step by NHS as it has lots of room for improvement. Similar steps should be taken for the improvement of appraisal and revalidation process for the doctors.
