Local residents can now access more evening and weekend appointments with a GP, nurse or healthcare assistant. GP practices are working together to offer patients appointments at more convenient times when they call their local practice.
Extended access hours
Monday to Friday: 6.30pm to 8pm
Saturday, Sunday and public holidays: 9am to 3pm
To make an appointment, you can call your own GP practice during normal business hours and choose which hub you would like to attend for your appointment (Southend Medical Centre or North Shoebury Surgery).
These appointments are in addition to the usual GP surgery opening hours from 8am to 6.30pm. It means that when patients contact their doctor they will be offered appointments at an accessible time and day at surgeries where appointments are available, which may not always be patient’s usual practice.
