Improved Access Appointments
The GPs of the Forest of Dean have been offered an opportunity to take part in a project to improve patient access to primary care services for the residents of the Forest of Dean. Extra GP and Nurse clinics will be held during normal hours, and additional appointments will also be offered at one of the Forest of Dean Surgeries between 6.30 pm and 8.00 pm on weekdays and on Saturday mornings. Patients registered with any GP Surgery within the Forest of Dean will be able to have an appointment at these extra clinics.
The aim is to make it easier and more convenient for patients to see a GP or Nurse by providing more appointments at certain Surgeries across the Forest of Dean. These are known as Improved Access appointments. Patients can book to be seen regardless of which Surgery they are registered at. These appointments can only be offered to patients registered with a Forest of Dean Practice. To book one of these appointments please contact the practice.
