Take part now to help shape the new Improved Access Service – have your say on improving access to GP services across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay.
We are keen to seek the views of local people in Devon about how we can further improve access to GP appointments.
A new service was launched nationally in October 2018 that has made improvements to the hours GP services are available. We are keen to find out people’s views on these hours and if they are in the most appropriate locations.
In the past GP surgeries have usually only offered appointments between 8am-6.30pm but the ‘improved access’ service means that appointments are now available evenings, weekends and bank holidays as well. The principle of the pilot is that everyone should have access to a GP appointment 365 days a year. Under this new scheme patients won’t necessarily see a GP at their own practice but may be asked to travel to another practice.
