More Choice, More Appointments Service

Routine and same day appointments with a GP, Nurse or other Healthcare Professional are available across our five primary care hubs, making it much easier to get the care you need at a location that is convenient for you.

How do I book an appointment?

Simply contact your local practice in the usual way and if they don’t have an appointment at a time to suit you, ask the reception staff about these additional appointments that are available to everyone. The staff will let you know of a number of appointments available early morning, late evening and at weekends. This probably won’t be with your usual practice but it does mean you can see a GP or nurse to discuss your health and care needs.

Who can access the service?

Anyone registered with a local practice in Doncaster can book an appointment through their local practice. Your practice will advise you if your need can be met by this service. (NB this is not a walk in service)

Who will have access to my medical record?

If you have consented, only authorised staff within the service will have access to your medical record. If you do not consent then your local practice will not be able to offer you one of these appointments. Your medical information will be treated with the strictest of confidentiality. All Doncaster practices have agreed to a data sharing agreement which sets out what information will be shared, how and when.

What if I don’t want my medical records to be shared?

If you don’t want your medical records to be viewed then you will need to tell the receptionist at your own practice when they are booking the appointment. They will then offer you an available appointment at your own practice.

Your views and feedback about the More Choice, More Appointments Service

At the end of the consultation with the GP, Nurse or Healthcare Professional you will be asked to complete a patient experience survey. Your views and feedback are important and will help us to make improvements.

Tests and referrals

The GPs, Nurses and Healthcare Professionals in these hubs will send any requests for tests and referrals back to your own local practice to action—in a small number of cases your own practice might recommend a different management plan to the More Choice, More Appointments GP.
