Appointments outside usual surgery hours

GP practices are working together in this area, to offer patients better access to appointments. This is known as the “enhanced access” service. This means that you can now book an appointment outside of our usual opening hours.

Early morning and evening appointments
Pre-bookable appointments are regularly available at Iver Medical Centre on:

  • Monday evening from 6.30pm to 7.30pm (telephone appointments with various clinicians)
  • Tuesday and Wednesday morning from 7am to 8am (telephone appointments with a GP)

How to book these and other available enhanced access appointments is explained below:

Booking an appointment
Telephone Iver Medical Centre as normal and request an enhanced access appointment. Some of these appointments may be at weekends and some may be with GPs or nurses at other local GP practices. The reception staff will be able to tell you what time and day there are available appointments. Our reception staff can also give you more information about the service and will book your appointment.

This is not a walk-in service
The enhanced access service is not a walk-in service – if you need urgent medical advice after 6.30pm, please phone NHS 111. NHS 111 will enable you to talk to a GP and book an urgent GP appointment if necessary.

Under Our primary care Network we explain how our practice is working with other local practices to improve services to local patients (in this case access to general practice).

Surgery closures and what to do

We are closed at weekends and on bank holidays and 10 afternoons in the year for staff training. Further information on closures including the dates is covered below. We also explain what to do when the surgery is closed (out of hours).

Protected learning time – mandatory training
