What is Improved Access?

Improved Access is a Wiltshire-wide initiative where local practices are working together to offer increased availability of services and appointments in the evenings and the weekends. This collaboration by practices will ensure all patients in Wiltshire have this option, but this might mean you will be offered an appointments at another practice.

Appointment Information

These appointments are available 18:30 - 20:00 Monday - Friday, Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays. Appointment types will vary - some being face-to-face, some on the phone - and 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 of Health Care Assistant. We are keen to balance the importance of continuity of care with the convenient access for patients, while ensuring that the service is safe.
