Extended Hours Access Posted or Updated on 2 Oct 2023

Seven Kings Practice offers Extended Hours access to all our patients from 6.30pm to 8.00pm Monday's, Tuesday's and Wednesday's every week.

The new Enhanced access model of care is to be delivered by the Primary Care Networks (PCN) from 1st October 2022. This model is designed to ensure that GP practices can offer enhanced access to patients outside of core hours i.e. 8.00am to 6.30pm including evenings and on Saturdays.

Enhanced Access Service- Seven Kings GP Alliance

Seven Kings Practice is part of Seven Kings GP Alliance which is a PCN consisting of eight member Practices within Redbridge. As a PCN, we have been working tirelessly to develop a model specifically tailored to the needs of our patients, with a view to deliver a high standard of care which is conveniently and consistently available to all our patients.

Our aim is to provide convenient access to GP services outside of core Practice hours whilst reducing any Health Inequalities our patients may be experiencing.

We have been consulting with patients to ensure that plans being proposed meet their needs as we are sincerely aiming for a patient centred model. Some of the proposals are as follows:

Phone Line Open

The Phone lines are open for pre-bookable appointments only.

Monday to Friday: 5.00pm to 8.00pm
Saturday: 8.30 am to 5.00pm

Tel: 0204 506 8826

Timing:

Monday to Friday: 6.30pm to 8.00pm

Saturday: 9.00am to 5.00pm

Location:

Seven Kings Health Centre-Main Site

The Palms Medical Centre: 1st Saturday each month (TBC) 

Clinicians:

The model being proposed will see services being provided by a diverse team of clinicians including but not limited to GP’s, Nurses, HCA’s, Clinical Pharmacists and first contact physiotherapists.

Appointments:

Appointments will be bookable consultations available up to 2 weeks in advance and will be delivered via different modes i.e. a mix of face to face, telephone and online appointments. This is to make sure that the service is accessible to all.

We want patients to have more choice, flexibility in accessing an appointment. The increase will extend capacity for routine appointments for those who need multiple support.

We eagerly welcome any feedback or suggestions. Please email any comments to: nelondonicb.sevenkingsgpalliance@nhs.net

Many thanks
