If you need to cancel an appointment for any reason please call our main office number on 0330 0130 030 and we will be happy to help either move our appointment to a more appropriate day and time for you or we can cancel the appointment if no longer required.




If I book an appointment in the Hub, will they have access to my full medical record?


At the point of booking the appointment with your surgery, you will be asked whether you agree to share your patient record so that the local clinicians at the GP Hubs are able to access your record and also share relevant information back to your Surgery. This is necessary so that the appropriate notes and referrals can be passed on to your surgery for follow-up actions. IT IS ESSENTIAL TO SHARE YOUR RECORD SO THAT THE CLINICIAN CAN PROVIDE APPROPRIATE CARE BASED ON YOUR FULL MEDICAL HISTORY. IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO SHARE, UNFORTUNATELY, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE SEEN WITHIN THE SERVICE.




What if I do not consent to sharing my medical record?


You will not be able to be seen by the Extended Access service. You will need to wait for the next available appointment at your registered GP surgery.
