South Warwickshire GP+ Extended Access Service

Patients across South Warwickshire are to be offered evening and weekend appointments thanks to a new service, called GP+, being provided by the South Warwickshire GP Federation (SWGP).

From 3 September, patients in South Warwickshire will be able to book face-to-face or telephone appointments at two GP+ ‘hubs’ from 6-9pm on weekdays and 9:00am-1:00pm on weekends. Routine and same day appointments will be offered with GPs, nurses and clinical pharmacists. In addition there will be same day appointments from 6:00 - 9:00pm on weekdays for children aged 0-16 who need treatment after school hours.

South Warwickshire GP+ will run initially from two centrally located and accessible hub locations, Trinity Court Surgery in Stratford-upon-Avon and Waterside Medical Centre in Leamington Spa. The hubs will be staffed by GPs and nurses from local GP practices, with some specialist roles recruited specifically for the new service. GP+ clinicians will have access to patient records, so that the patient’s full medical history is known and records can be updated regardless of when or where patients are seen (subject to consent). Appointments for the extended access service can be booked via the practice.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

IMPORTANT UPDATE: 16 MARCH

Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal. The Chief Medical Officer announced that the country is moving into the ‘Delay’ stage of the response to coronavirus from Friday, 13th March 2020.

The new advice issued by the Chief Medical Officer is as follows:

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

  • a high temperature
  • a new continuous cough

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
  • your condition gets worse
  • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
