Additional GP Appointments – Extended Access
Extended Access is a government initiative that requires Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to offer appointments to patients outside of a GP practice’s core opening hours that is, in the evenings and at weekends.
The Extended Access service for patients in Dacorum is organised and operated by the local federation, Dacorum Healthcare Providers Ltd, who employ clinical, administrative and reception staff to run this service from different locations (known as hubs) across Dacorum locality. Currently, these Dacorum Extended Access hub sites are:
- Hemel Hempstead Hospital, Urgent Care Centre: Hillfield Road, Hemel Hempstead, Herts., HP2 4AD
- Highfield Surgery: Cambrian Way, Hemel Hempstead, Herts., HP2 5TA
- The Nap Surgery: Kings Langley, WD4 8ET
- The New Surgery, Tring: St Peters House, Church Yard, Tring, Herts., HP23 5AE
The Extended Access service is operated as a locality for all GP practices in the Dacorum area and all patients from these practices can book Extended Access evening and weekend appointments at one of the hubs by contacting their own GP practice.
