Non-urgent advice: Extended Access & Out of Hours

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

The Fylde Coast 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 Fylde Coast NHS has arranged for additional appointments to be provided outside of normal GP practice hours by the Fylde Coast Integrated Urgent Care Service.

The service offers pre-bookable and same-day routine primary care appointments with a range of clinicians including GPs, nurses and health care assistants.

Please be aware that this is not a walk-in service – you must have an appointment.

The service employs local clinicians from the Fylde Coast, where possible.

Out-of-hours Service
During the hours when the surgery is closed and when it is a non-emergency situation, please telephone 111.

This will connect you to the national NHS 111 service, who will assess your condition and direct you to the local service best suited to your needs.

NHS 111 is available 24/7 and is free to call from both landlines and mobiles.

Same Day Health Centre
The Same Day Health Centre is available to all patients between 8am and 8pm 7 days a week. They are available for minor injuries and ailments.
