Sometimes people want to see a doctor outside of the normal surgery hours due to work and other commitments. Local practices in Wiltshire are now working together to offer increased availability of appointments between 18.30-20.00 on weekdays and on weekends and bank holidays.
There will be a mixture of bookable and same-day appointments available across the week. We will be offering appointments with GPs as well as with other healthcare professionals, such as a Practice Nurse or Health Care Assistant. For our patients, appointments will mainly be at Westminster Memorial Hospital in Shaftesbury or occasionally at Abbey View Medical Centre. We are keen to balance the importance of continuity of care with convenient access for patients, while ensuring that the service is safe.
Appointments can be booked by calling your local Surgery during normal opening times. A receptionist will explain the process, and ensure the booking is appropriate. You will need to give consent to use this service.
