GP Extended Access:
Making evening and weekend appointments – giving you more choice
GP practices in this area are making it easier for you to make appointments at times which suit you.
From October, 2017 all practices in south east Hampshire, and Fareham and Gosport – including ours – will take part in a new scheme to allow you to make appointments from 6.30pm to 8pm on week days, from 8am to 4.30pm on Saturdays, and on Sunday mornings.
If you do need to see someone, we may be able to offer you an appointment at your local ‘hub’ – which is located at Fareham Community Hospital.
There, you will be seen by a locally-based healthcare professional – the service is led by GPs but also includes other staff such as nurses, or healthcare assistants. The staff can – with your consent – access your medical records, ensuring a high quality service.
Please note: the new extended opening hours is not a walk-in service – you need to make an appointment.
You can make an appointment by phoning Brook Lane Surgery on 01489 575191 and booking a slot in the normal way, or – if we are closed and you think you need to see someone more urgently – you can call NHS 111 to ask to make an appointment.
