Local GPs are working together to offer patients better access to appointments in General Practice in Buckinghamshire, known as the ‘Enhanced Access’ Service. This means you can now  book an appointment in a practice local to you:

  • Up until 20:00, Monday to Friday
  • For selected hours on a Saturday (your registered practice can confirm which practices are open, and their opening hours on this day)

All appointments need to be pre-booked, either in advance or on the day.

How to book an Enhanced Access appointment

To book an Enhanced Access appointment ring your GP Surgery as normal, where the reception staff will tell you where clinics are being held on what day, and the times of the available appointments. A convenient appointment will then be booked for you. Please note, this is not a “walk in” service – if you need urgent medical advice after 18:30, please phone NHS 111.
