Extended Access – Evening and Weekend Appointments

Did you know you can get a GP appointment in the evening and at the weekend?

Patients in Knowsley are able to benefit from extra GP appointments during normal surgery hours, in the evening and at the weekend.

The appointments are available in locations across the borough and we will aim to book you in at the most convenient time and location for you.

The appointments are available at: Nutgrove Villa in Huyton, Kirkby Primary Care Resource Centre, Halewood Primary Care Resource Centre and Whiston Primary Care Resource Centre. Opening times vary between locations but overall Extended Access is available from 8am – 8pm, Monday – Friday and 10am – 8pm Saturday and Sunday.

To book an Extended Access appointment, ring your practice on the usual number, quote ‘Extended Access’ and a receptionist will assist you.

Practice Appointment System

Our practice appointment system to see a clinician has five different options.

  • Nurse Triage appointments

Our Advanced Nurse Practitioner will triage patients over the phone and if necessary invite you in for further appointment/examination

  • Appointments – Same day

We have an allocation of book on the day appointments* (should be used for acute illness/emergencies)

  • Pre-bookable

Appointments can be booked up to two weeks in advance**

  • Telephone consultations

Each GP has a set amount of telephone consultations at the end of each surgery, patients can book into these if they don’t actually need to physically see a GP face-to-face

  • Extended Hours (Saturday)

We also operate an extended hours session on a Saturday morning between 09:00 – 11:30 am. These are pre-bookable only

*appointments booked on the day are very popular and quite often are gone within half an hour of us opening

** pre-bookable appointments have been reduced to 2 weeks instead of 4 due to the amount of DNAs we have (DNA – did not attend), this is continuously monitored

Blood Clinic

We have a team of phlebotomist available at the Practice so patients can access this service without having to go to a community clinic or hospital setting.

The clinics are available:

Monday – Friday – 8:45 – 10:15

Wednesday 12:15 – 13:30
