GP Extended Access
The GP Extended Access service has commenced in Kettering offering additional appointments, designed to make it easier for patients to access primary care services at a time that suits them.
Under the service patients registered with Linden will be able to make an appointment at a time that is much more convenient to them, including evenings until 8pm, weekends and Bank Holidays.
If a patient wishes to attend an extended hours appointment, they may be given the option to travel to a central hub and will not necessarily see their own GP. This means that extended access appointments require patient consent for sharing their records. Patients preferring to see their usual GP or practice nurse should book an appointment with their practice during normal opening hours.
Patients will still need to contact their GP practice in the usual way to request an appointment. If there is no appointment available at the practice, patients may be offered an appointment with the GP Extended Access Service, if this is right for them.
Patients needing urgent care when their practice is closed should continue to call NHS 111 in the usual way.
