Enhanced Access

Western Dales Primary Care Network - Working with your Practice to offer more appointments.

You can book an appointment on a Saturday or weekday evening provided by Morecambe Bay Primary Care Collaborative

Saturday appointments (9am to 5pm) with a GP, Nurse or Health Care Assistant on rotation across Bentham, Lunesdale and Sedbergh Surgeries.

Evening Appointments via telephone (between 6.30pm - 8pm) with a GP, Mental Health Nurse or Pharmacist.

Monday/Wednesday/ Friday Evening:  GP telephone

The clinician can access your record with your surgery (with your consent) and advise, treat and prescribe medication. They can order blood tests and onward referral if needed.

Tuesday Evening, Pharmacist – can advise on your medications, health advice and support your Long Term Conditions. These appointments are usually every Tuesday evening. 

Thursday Evening , Mental Health Nurse : are you feeling a bit low, anxious and need to talk. Accessing some support can prevent things escalating. These appointments are longer, with the same MH Nurse and usually every Thursday evening offering you continuity.

How to make your appointment: Contact your Surgery and ask for a weekend or evening appointment.  Nationally there is a problem with making these appointments available on line, it is coming soon, we hope.
