GP Extended/Enhanced Service

What is the GP Extended/Enhanced Service in Knowsley?

Approximately 3 years ago NHS Knowsley CCG commissioned a GP service that provides additional capacity and support between the hours of 8am and 6.30pm, Monday to Friday.  The service has since expanded its capacity to allow for patients to access a GP appointment at the weekends within two out of the four locations.

Originally known as ‘winter fix’ this service provides additional ‘same day’ GP face to face appointments and home visits to support local GP Practices during periods of high demand for acute consultations.

Who provides the GP Extended/Enhanced Service in Knowsley?

The GP extended/enhanced service is provided by Urgent Care 24 (UC24), a Merseyside based social enterprise who deliver a range of urgent and primary care services across Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool and Sefton.

How do I access an appointment with the GP Extended/Enhanced Service?

If you contact us on the usual practice number during our normal opening hours (i.e. 8am – 6.30pm) we will advise you if we have any appointments available.  If we are fully booked and do not have any appointments available then we may be able to offer you an alternative appointment with a UC24 GP based in one of the locations listed below.  We will always aim to book you an appointment at the most convenient time and location for you.
