Extended Hours & Bolton GP Federation Appointments at Weekend and in the Evening

We now offer appointments  with a doctor on a Monday Evening from 6.30-7.30 and is primarily for patients that work and cannot attend during normal surgery hours.

We now have routine GP and Nurse appointments available 7 days a week 6.30pm-9.30pm weekdays and at 9am-1pm Saturdays; Sundays and Bank Holidays. The appointment will be at either Royal Bolton Hospital Urgent Treatment Centre, Winifred Kettle Centre (Westhoughton) or Waters Meeting Health Centre.  The appointment must be booked through the practice and you will be asked whether you consent for a Health Care professional to access your medical records. If this is not agreed you will be unable to use this service.

Access to Primary Care - Enhanced Access

Introduction - What is Enhanced Access?

From 1st October 2022, GP practices will be required to provide increased provision of primary care services (enhanced access arrangements) between the hours of 6.30pm and 8.00pm Mondays to Fridays and between 9.00am and 5.00pm on Saturdays. Bolton GP Federation are looking to gather some feedback from patients and the wider public to find out what people think about the enhanced access offer, what people know about this, and how people think the service will best meet their needs as well as raising awareness of the service. This is so services can be planned around what suits patient needs best, so please take a few moments to tell us your views about this. Please note this survey is being carried out by Healthwatch Bolton.
