Making it easier to see a doctor in West Norfolk

Published by Grace Mcgachy at 12:58pm 6th December 2018.

We know how hard it can be to get a doctors appointment in Norfolk.

Hopefully, it will get a bit easier now as surgeries are offering us the chance to book appointments outside of traditional office hours.

This could include appointments with a GP, practice nurse or to help people manage long term conditions.

The appointment may not be at your usual surgery and may be with a clinician from a different practice because in many areas, GP practices are sharing arrangements.

Dr Paul Williams, Chair of West Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group, said:

"We are delighted that West Norfolk residents will now have even better access to primary care services.

Having more evening and weekend appointments will hopefully make a real difference, meaning our patients can access an appointment at a more convenient time for them.

The appointment may not be at your usual practice, but will be at a convenient time, which we hope will improve everyone's experience of accessing care.

We would like to remind anyone needing medical assistance when their practice is closed should continue to dial NHS 111."

 

Patients should contact their own surgery for more information about arrangements in their area or to book an appointment.
