Improved Access Service

Improving access to general practice, Evening and Weekend appointments now available

Patients who are registered at Portland Practice and Hatherley Branch can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (after 18:30) or at the weekends (on Saturday and Sunday). Appointments will take place at St Catherine’s Practice in St Paul’s Medical Centre. Talk to the practice receptionist to find out more or book an appointment.

By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Further information is available at
