Evenings/Weekends

On the 1st October 2018 Improved Access was launched nationwide. You can now see a GP or other healthcare professional during:

  • weekday evenings between 6.30pm and 8.00pm
  • Saturdays and Sundays

These appointments offered could be

  • here at Waterfield House
  • another local GP practice
  • another local NHS service - such as a General Practice Hub

How will it work for patients of Waterfield House?

Clinics will be held in Tunbridge Wells area at Waterfield House, Clanricarde, Kingswood, Grosvenor & St James, Spelhurst & Greggswood,  Lonsdale, St Andrews and Abbey Court Medical Centre on a rotational basis.

 What type of appointments will be available?

Monday to Friday an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) or Clinical Pharmacist (CP)  will be available 2.00 pm to 8.00 pm. An ANP or CP can treat and prescribe for certain conditions.

On Saturdays a GP and/or ANP  and a Practice Nurse and or Health Care Assistant will be available between 9.00 am to 1.00 pm.

On Sundays and Bank Holidays a GP will be available between 9.00 am to 12.00 pm (Tonbridge).

 Who can book these appointments?

Improved Access appointments are available for all patients in Tunbridge Wells, regardless of where they are located. This means that Waterfield House patients can book these appointments 7 days a week, 52 weeks of the year. It does however mean that it is unlikely to be your normal GP who sees you at the weekend, and it is likely that you will have to go to a different surgery to Waterfield House for these appointments.

How can I book an appointment? 

In order to book these appointments, you contact the surgery reception staff as normal. The surgery phone opening times remain as normal. Patients can phone between 8.00 am to 6.30 pm Monday to Friday. This will not change as a result of this scheme. Therefore you will not be able to phone the reception staff on Saturdays, Sundays / Bank Holidays or between 6.30 pm to 8.00 pm Monday to Friday.
