Extended access service

Appointments with a GP or practice nurse are now available in the evenings and weekends for all patients registered with a practice in Bedford and Central Bedfordshire. These are called 'extended access' appointments. Practices are working together to provide these additional appointments to increase access to healthcare at times that are convenient to patients.

Extended access appointments can be made by calling your registered practice. The appointment could be held at another practice and with a GP or practice nurse from another practice. The reception team at your registered practice will confirm all of the details at the time of booking and if you are registered to receive text message alerts, you will receive a text message to confirm the date, time and location of your appointment.

At the current time, extended access appointments are not available to book online.

There has been no change to normal surgery appointments which are available as usual from your registered practice.
