There is a national requirement to increase the access to GP services across England and Wales by providing evening (6:30pm - 8:00pm) and weekend appointments. 

Some surgeries in our area already provide a limited evening and weekend service but the CCG wants to ensure everyone in the Vale of York is served equally. 

An improved service would allow:

  • An increase of same day appointments;
  • The availability of routine appointments in the evening and/or at  weekends;
  • These appointments would be provided by a mix of clinicians such as GPs, nurses and pharmacists, scheduled appropriately to your medical needs.

 The purpose of this survey is to give you the opportunity think about what your needs are and then tell us how you would like the service to be delivered.

In line with data protection law, your information will remain anonymous and will only be used to inform these plans.

Would you like to receive confidential emotional support from another parent? Parent to Parent is a UK-wide confidential telephone service providing emotional support to parents and carers of autistic children and adults. The service is provided by trained parent volunteers who offer telephone support from their own homes. The Parent to Parent volunteers are based across the UK, so parents don’t have to share information with someone in their local area.
