Wigan GP Access Alliance

right-care-right-timeThree Wigan Federations Working Together

The Wigan PMCF Extended Access Programme delivers 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 (some hubs operate up to 9:00 pm)and 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Saturdays and Sundays.

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.

A single clinical system with access to ‘Shared Clinical Records’ has been implemented across the hub practices.in the future services and each site will have access to innovative technology to allow telephone and video consultations with primary care services.
