What is Enhanced Access?

Enhanced Access is a service that extends the availability of healthcare appointments beyond the standard hours, offering evening and weekend appointments for optimal convenience. The aim of this service is to provide greater accessibility for patients, catering to those with work or other commitments that may prevent them from seeking care during regular hours. Our Enhanced Access service includes GP appointments, nurse consultations, and other healthcare checks.

How Enhanced Access can help you...

In today’s fast-paced world, finding time for personal healthcare during regular working hours can be challenging. Enhanced Access addresses this issue by offering extended availability that includes evenings and weekends, enabling patients to receive healthcare services at a time that best fits their schedule.

This is particularly beneficial for working individuals and families, the elderly, and others with time constraints who might otherwise struggle to make appointments. By providing a more flexible approach to appointment scheduling, Enhanced Access reduces the risk of missed or delayed care, resulting in more timely diagnoses and treatments.

Moreover, Enhanced Access can help decrease the overall burden on emergency healthcare services. By providing more convenient hours for routine and non-emergency care, it helps to direct patient flow away from emergency departments, allowing these services to focus more effectively on urgent cases.
