Improved Access Appointments

Evening and Saturday Morning Clinics

As a member of Practice of Cheltenham Peripheral Cluster we are also participate in the provision of Improved Access Appointments via a shared rota. This gives patients an opportunity to book an appointment with a general practice each weekday, Monday to Friday, 18:30 – 20:00, and Saturday mornings from 08:30 – 12:30.

Records are shared across the practices with adherence to strict IT Governance and Confidentiality rules and a signed Information Sharing Agreement has been signed and approved by each practice Named Improved Access Lead and approved by each practice Caldicott Guardian.

The Cheltenham Peripheral Cluster consists of 5 GP practices:
