The IMP Federation (of which Abbey Medical Practice is a part of) is pleased to be able to offer patients access to routine GP appointments at evenings and weekends. The new service is part of an extended access service which has been commissioned by NHS Lincolnshire West Clinical Commissioning Group.
The appointments will also be available on bank holidays and across the Easter, Christmas and New Year periods.
Extended hours appointments are for pre-bookable non-urgent appointments.
For urgent matters at evenings and weekends, patients will continue to access the GP Out of Hours Services at Lincoln County Hospital via NHS 111 or the Minor Injuries Unit at John Coupland Hospital.
PLEASE NOTE - If a patient wishes to attend an extended hours appointment, they will need to travel to another local GP practice or a central GP practice hub and will not see their own GP.
Ultimately, this is about allowing a patient to see a GP or practice nurse at a time that is convenient to them.
To arrange an appointment or for more information on when and where appointments are available, speak to a member of the Reception Team or call the practice on 01522 530334
