  • or rely on working carers to take you to appointments;

then the GP Extended Access service is here to support you.

About the service

Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group has arranged for additional appointments to be provided outside of normal GP practice hours.

The service offers pre-bookable, and same day appointments to general practice services.

Appointments

To book an appointment you must contact your own GP practice. An appointment must have been booked in advance of visiting the extended access service.

Extended hours appointments are for routine general practice issues and not for urgent care. If urgent care is required please call NHS111 for advice.

Please note that when you book an appointment the practice will ask you for consent to share your detailed GP record with the clinician providing the care.

Should you need to cancel your appointment please contact your GP practice.
