Share your experience of extended access to GP appointments
People living in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent are being asked to share their experiences of the new service offering extended access to GP appointments into the evening and at weekends.
The Staffordshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) want to know your stories around how you have been making use of these extra appointments to make sure they’re working as well as they can be.
Since being introduced in September 2018, patients with a GP in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent have had a greater choice of when they can see a GP, nurse or other primary care service. You can now book appointments on weekend mornings and from 6.30pm to 8pm on weekdays, in addition to the usual hours of 8am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday.
The survey will be available until 11pm on Sunday 16 June 2019.
You can access the online survey here. To request a hard copy of the survey, please call 01785 854482.
If you are pleased with the service and care that you have received today, please post a comment about the Practice on the NHS Website.

We now have 2 Practice Pharmacists who can do many of the medication reviews without the need to see a GP. Please talk to our receptionists to book an appointment.
Weekend Pre-Bookable Appointments
From the 1st of September 2018, in addition to the Practice’s normal opening hours, you can also book an appointment to see a local clinician in the evenings between 6:30 to 8:00 pm, or on Saturday and Sunday at locations across Lichfield and Burntwood. GP Practices are working together to provide Extended Access appointments to our patients. This means that your appointment may be with a different GP or health professional based in a different location or Practice than you are used to, and some of these appointments are telephone only. These appointments are pre-bookable by contacting the surgery during our normal opening times. When you call, our receptionists will be able to help you to find a suitable appointment.
Text Messaging Service
From time to time we may contact patients via an SMS text message, if you have previously agreed to us contacting you that way. Any text messages sent from us will be headed either 'AccuRx' or '07903588846'. Please do not reply to these text messages unless specifically asked to as these numbers are not monitored.
