Primary Care Networks & Extended Hours

As part of the ongoing changes to primary care within the NHS, new organisations called Primary Care Networks (PCN) have been established.  Boultham Park Medical Practice is part of of the Apex PCN. 

The first additional service being commissioned by NHS England through the PCNs is the extended hours service.  


In addition to the GP and Healthcare Assistant clinics that we already run on a Tuesday evening, we will now be adding nurse practitioner, chronic disease and routine treatment room nurse clinics as well.    These clinics do put an additional strain on manpower and we ask that patients use these clinics diligently, in particular making sure that they really can attend prior to booking these appointments and don't then fail to turn up.  We hope patients will find these extended hours of service useful and thank you for your help in making them run efficiently.
