Extra GP appointments are available for busy Sutton patients this winter
Sutton residents can now see an NHS GP more conveniently this winter, with appointments available 8 'til 8, 7 days a week.
It's now easier to see a GP this winter with hundreds more appointments available. In Sutton, 1,852 GP hub appointments were available in September with almost 150 not taken.
Dr Dino Pardhanani, local GP and joint clinical director for Sutton CCG said: "We know it's not always easy to squeeze in an appointment with your GP to fit in with a busy work and family life.
"Appointments at evenings and weekends will help to improve access to GP services during the busy winter months, allowing patients to get help with their health concerns at a time to suit them."
To make an appointment, people living in Sutton can call their GP practice in the usual way and can ask for a time that is convenient, even at the weekends. If the GP practice is closed, then they can call 07578 813838 / 07479 819677.
Pharmacies across Sutton can also provide medical advice on many minor health concerns, such as coughs and colds, earache, and other winter illnesses without the need for an appointment.
