Your views wanted on evening and weekend appointments

The extended access service offers GP practice appointments in evenings and at weekends when our surgery is closed.

This service is currently offered from Great Harwood Medical Group and Acorn Primary Health Care Centre in Accrington.

However, from 1 October 2022, NHS England has requested that primary care networks (which are networks of GP practices across a small geographical location) take over the running of these services in their local areas. This means there may be some minor changes to the service.

We feel it is important that our patients are able to have a say in how these services are provided, and we therefore have devised a short survey so you are able to do this.
