The extended access service, currently provided by Fylde Coast Medical Services, offers GP practice appointments in evenings and at weekends, when our surgery is closed.
These services are currently offered from five different sites across the Fylde Coast.
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 changes to the services for our patients. We hope these changes will actually result in a more accessible service for local people.
We feel it is important that our patients are able to have a say in how these services are provided, including where and when, and we therefore have devised a short survey so you are able to do this.
