Please see email below from BCCG regarding extending opening hours of GP practices in Bedfordshire
At Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (BCCG) we are seeking views about extending the opening hours of GP practices in Bedfordshire. Currently most GP practices in Bedfordshire are open between 8am and 6.30pm Monday to Friday. These are referred to as “core contracted hours”. Most practices are also open for longer hours on one or two weekdays and some Saturday mornings. These are referred to as “extended hours appointments”.
At BCCG we aim to provide a service to start in April 2019 whereby these “extended hours appointments” are offered every weekday evening and at weekends depending on local demand for ALL patients regardless of which surgery they are registered at. This “extended hours service” could mean visiting a nearby practice other than your registered practice and seeing a clinician from another practice rather than one from your own practice.
We would appreciate your help in sharing the below questionnaire on your website and with your members. We would like to gather views from those living in Bedfordshire on when and how they would like to access extended hours appointments to understand the true demand for services to enable us to design services that best fit the requirements of the population.
The link to the survey is https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/BCCGExtendedHours and the survey is live until Sunday 15 October 2017.
