Bolton GP Surgeries Evening, Weekend and Bank Holiday Service
As a patient at our practice, if you would like to see a GP or Practice Nurse for a routine appointment in an evening or at the weekend or on a bank holiday, we are able to offer you appointments at one of the Bolton GP Extended Access Hubs in Bolton.
Bolton’s GP practices have joined together, through their Federation, to offer appointments in the evenings, at weekends and on bank holidays. These appointments are with Bolton GPs and Bolton Practice Nurses and are available via the Extended Primary Care Service provided by Bolton GP Federation on behalf of practices across Bolton.
You can make an appointment to see a Doctor, an Advanced Nurse Practitioner or Practice Nurse in one of the Hubs in the same way as you book appointments with us, through our practice reception.
Appointments are available across Bolton hosted at the following sites:
**Urgent Care Treatment Centre (Royal Bolton Hospital)
**Waters Meeting Health Centre
**Winifred Kettle Health Centre
Monday to Friday 6.30pm until 9.30pm
Sunday 9.30am- 1.00pm
Bank Holidays 9.30am- 1.00pm
If you wish to cancel your appointment at one of these sites, please contact your GP practice, if your practice is closed please telephone 0161 763 8941 to cancel.
Access to Primary Care - Enhanced Access
Introduction - What is Enhanced Access?
From 1st October 2022, GP practices will be required to provide increased provision of primary care services (enhanced access arrangements) between the hours of 6.30pm and 8.00pm Mondays to Fridays and between 9.00am and 5.00pm on Saturdays. Bolton GP Federation are looking to gather some feedback from patients and the wider public to find out what people think about the enhanced access offer, what people know about this, and how people think the service will best meet their needs as well as raising awareness of the service. This is so services can be planned around what suits patient needs best, so please take a few moments to tell us your views about this. Please note this survey is being carried out by Healthwatch Bolton.
