Improved Access GP appointments

Posted on September 27th, 2018

We are keen to seek the views of local people in Devon, Plymouth and Torbay about how we can further improve access to GP appointments. Since the service was launched nationally in October 2018, we are now keen to find out people’s views on these hours and if they are in the most appropriate locations.  A short and confidential survey to gather views that will take no more than 5 minutes to complete.  It will give patients the opportunity to tell us about when they would like to be able to access GP appointments and where they would be willing to travel to access them. 


With effect Castle Gardens Surgery will no longer provide an extended hours service but will replace it with Improved Access which is:
• a collaboration of local North Devon GP practices are working together to offer patients better access to GP appointments across North Devon – that means you may be able to see a GP or practice nurse [or other health professional] at a time which is more convenient for you;
• This service will cover a patient population of approximately 165,000 patients including patients from practices not involved with provision but excluding patients from Holsworthy, Hatherleigh and Shebbear who will be involved in another their own collaboration.
• Patients from our surgery will be, from 1st October 2018, able to book appointments to see a GP or practice nurse or other health professional in the evenings or at weekends from:
0800 to 2000, Monday to Friday am
1800 to 2000, Friday pm
0900 to 1230, Saturdays
0900 to 1200, Sundays
• There are now a range of ways you can get advice from a GP or practice nurse, including over the telephone and online. Speak to the practice receptionist or a member of the practice team to find out more;
• To arrange an appointment, speak to the practice receptionist or member of the practice team or call the practice on 01805 623222
