GP Extended Access

Evening and weekend appointments – giving you more choice!

West Cambridgeshire Federation

GP Practices in this area are making it easier for you to make ROUTINE appointments at times which suit you.

From 1st October 2022, we will be taking part in a new scheme to allow you to make appointments every evening between 18:30 and 20:15 Monday to Friday and from 08:30 to 12:15 Saturdays and Sundays.

The extra appointments will be offered at 2 local surgeries, detailed below, and staffed by a variety of clinicians from across the area.

Non-urgent advice: Please Note

The extended opening hours is NOT a walk-in service, so you will need to make an appointment; these are intended to be ROUTINE appointments, rather than for ‘urgent’ matters.

Contact our usual reception team, during our normal surgery hours, and they will be able to see what appointments are available to book.  You will not be able to book these online yourself.

The service will offer:

  • GP consultations
  • Practice Nurse appointments offering wound care, cervical screening etc.
  • Health Care Assistant appointments offering Blood Pressure Monitoring, Blood Tests etc.

As the service grows we will be able to offer other appointment types.

Cancelling an Extended Access Appointment

If you need to cancel an appointment you should contact our receptionists at Papworth Surgery, during normal surgery hours; we will then relay the message to the Extended Access team.

If you need to cancel after Papworth Surgery closes, then please ring the number details below; please note your call will only be answered during the Extended Access surgery times and you cannot ring the surgeries on their usual surgery number as they don’t have access to the Extended Access appointments.
