GP SERVICES – EXTENDED ACCESS SURVEY 2017

Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) plan and buy healthcare services for the local population in your area.

National funding is available from 2018 to improve access to GP services. This includes ensuring that everyone has more convenient access to GP services, including a mixture of same day and routine appointments on weekday evenings after 6.30pm, and at weekends based on local needs.  This piece of work is known as ‘delivering extended access to GP services’.

As local CCGs we are currently considering how best to deliver extended access in your area so that it meets the needs of our population, is realistically deliverable within the budget we have been allocated to provide this additional service. There is a national and local shortage of GPs and other clinicians who work in general practice. This means that extended access services could be provided at a venue other than your own surgery and that you may not see your own GP or even a GP from your usual practice.  Should that GP need to access your medical records, your consent will be sought when you book the appointment.

The CCGs would like to find out more about your views on extending access to GP services in the evenings and at weekends.

By completing the survey you have the opportunity to tell us:

·         How likely you are to use GP appointments in the evenings and weekends.

·         The kind of services you might want to use in the evenings and at weekends.

·         Whether you would consider alternatives to face to face consultations.

Message from Crawley CCG  and Horsham CCG

You may have seen  #HelpMyNHS  Campaign  in your local press and social media recently. This opens a public conversation about the challenges facing the NHS, continuing on from the 5 Communities campaign which ran throughout 2014-15. While more people than ever before are calling on its services, our NHS is facing the biggest financial challenge it has known. Our health and care services are under pressure and need to change and adapt in response to the continuously increasing demand.

#HelpMyNHS  is a campaign which looks at how we all use local health and social care – from GP and primary care services, hospitals, social care, community and mental health services.  We will also celebrate the tireless work of thousands of NHS and social care staff who are working around the clock to treat record numbers of patients.

I will #HelpMyNHS.  We’re asking everyone in our 5 Communities to do something small to #HelpMyNHS. By adding your name to our pledge wall, you’ll be demonstrating your commitment and support for our local NHS.
