Dear all,

Give us your views on access to general practice services

NHS England is reviewing access to general practice services with the aim of improving patient access during normal practice opening times as well as over the evenings and weekends. The aim of the review is to reduce variation in in access and improve patient experience.  As part of this, the review will also be considering how other services impact on access to general practice, for example digital services and NHS 111

Patients and  members of the public are invited to attend an event on Tuesday 20 August (10.00am – 4.00pm) at the Ambassadors Bloomsbury Hotel, 12 Upper Woburn Place, Bloomsbury, London, WC1H 0HX to provide their feedback. We would like to gather feedback on your collective experiences of access to help us consider and shape recommendations on how we can develop services that better meets your needs, make best use of available resources as well as addressing inequalities in access

In addition, the event will provide an opportunity to find out more about new local primary care networks. These are groups of general practices working together with other local services which have been established to provide more coordinated care to their communities. You can find out more on the NHS England website at www.england.nhs.uk/pcn

Please email england.accessreview@nhs.net to register your interest to attend.  Travel to London can be booked in advance by the Access team where requested
