    Evening and weekend appointments

    Improving access to general practice:
    Evening and weekend appointments now available

    Patients who are registered at Blacketts can book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (after 6pm) or at the weekends (on Saturday and Sunday). Appointments will take place at Dr Piper House. Talk to the practice receptionist to find out more or book an appointment.

    There are appointments available as early as 7am at Blacketts Medical Practice and as late as 7.30pm. Saturday morning appointments are also available.

    By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Further information is available at
