Wigan GP Access Alliance

right-care-right-timeThree Wigan Federations Working Together

The Wigan PMCF Extended Access Programme will deliver extended access in nine hubs across the Wigan Borough meeting the demand of the whole population.
This includes implementation of ‘Same Day’ access standard ensuring all Wigan patients can access ‘hub’ level services on weekday evenings and weekends.

The hubs allow patients choice to access GP practices during the hours of 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm weekdays and 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Saturdays and Sundays.

We expect health outcomes and continuity of care to improve for groups who may find it difficult to access GP services during existing opening times such as working people and carers who are dependent on others who work to take over their caring duties whilst visiting primary care services.

The hubs will ultimately have a range of ‘wrap around’ services including phlebotomy services, health checks, community nursing, long term condition clinics, and social care.

We will implement a single clinical system with access to ‘Shared Clinical Records’ across all practices and wraparound services and each site will have access to innovative technology to allow telephone and video consultations with primary care services.

The practices operating since July:

  • Shevington Surgery
  • Pemberton Surgery

The practices opening from the end of September:

  • Seven Brooks Surgery
