Evening and weekend appointments

Evening and weekend appointments are available with GPs, practice nurses and other healthcare professionals for routine pre-booked services.

The Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS is committed to improving access to primary care services. This includes making appointments available at times that are convenient to patients.

If you:

  • find it difficult to attend an appointment during the working day,
  • are a busy parent with small children,
  • or rely on working carers to take you to appointments

then this service is here to support you.

About the service

The Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS has supported GP practices to arrange for additional appointments to be provided outside of normal GP practice hours.

This service is organised by primary care networks, which are partnerships of GP practices in geographical areas typically covering about 50,000 people. The location of the service and the times it is available is organised locally by each primary care network individually and so will vary depending on which GP practice you are registered with. If you want information about the service in your area, please contact your GP practice.

The service offers pre-bookable and same-day routine primary care appointments with a range of clinicians including GPs, nurses and health care assistants. Appointments are available for both face-to-face and virtual (telephone or video) consultations.

Please be aware that this is not a walk-in service – you must have an appointment. The service employs local clinicians where possible.
