Help Us To Shape Our Potential Future Appointment System


Future Appointment System


You might already be aware that there is a NHS initiative to make access to GP appointments easier by surgeries opening from 8am to 8pm seven days a week. However, this will not be offered by every surgery. Instead, the NHS wants groups of practices to join together to offer these 'extended' hours. This Practice has joined 11 other local Solihull practices to see how we can make this work for our patients and for the surgeries. This initiative does not mean more appointments from your usual GP at your registered Practice. It means that if you are offered a consultation outside of your own Practice's normal hours, this will be at another location within the boundary map below (yet to be decided) and not with a doctor of your choice. Consultations could include a face to face appointment, a telephone conversation or via a video link (e.g.Skype)
So remembering this service is being offered by a group of Practices, we would be very grateful if you would answer the following questions to help us work out the best way of organising these appointments. Your feedback is very important to us.
