The Walsall Extended Access Service is designed to allow patients increased access to primary care appointments during the evenings, weekends and bank holidays when GP practices may be closed. Not only does this increase the availability of appointments but also offers a more convenient appointment time for those who may not be able to attend the practice within the normal opening hours.
The service is open weekday evening, weekends and bank holidays and is operated from four hubs, the North Hub (Pinfold Health Centre, WS3 3JP), the South Hub (Broadway Medical Centre, WS1 3HD), the Walsall East Hub (Anchor Meadow Health Centre, WS9 8AJ) and the West Hub (Darlaston Health Centre, WS10 8SY.)
Patients from all Walsall practices can access these appointments by calling 01922 501999. The service is not an urgent care centre or walk-in-centre and hence an appointment is needed. Telephone lines are open between 0800am and 2100pm weekdays and 1000am and 1500pm weekends for appointment bookings or questions regarding the service. The clinics are staffed by a diverse range of clinicians, including General Practitioners, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Paramedics and Clinical Pharmacists.
Our clinicians have full access to your medical records and send all information relating to your consultation with our clinician back to your registered GP. Spoken language and British Sign Language interpreters are available upon request. Please ensure that you inform the call handler of your requirements when booking an appointment.
