How to book

To book these appointments, please contact your registered practice by phone or in person asking to make an appointment during these times at your local hub. By booking an appointment, patients consent for the clinician based at the Local Hubs to access their full medical record so that they can offer a safe and knowledgeable service.

Consent to Share

To use the service we will ask for your consent to share your medical records with the Extended Access Service. Without this consent we will not be able to see you in the Extended Access Service as the clinician would not have access to your medical records .  When you are offered an appointment, our receptionists will talk to you about what this means and why it is necessary.
