Enhanced Access Survey

Dr Loudonsack & Partners as a GP Practice is a member of a local group of GP Practices known as the Ribble Medical Group Primary Care Network.

The group will be introducing a new Enhanced Access service from 01 October 2022 which will enable all patients across the group to book into additional routine appointments at least two weeks in advance. These will be available:


  • Between 6:30pm and 8pm on weekday evenings.


  • Between 9am and 5pm on Saturdays.


  • Possibly at other times depending on patient preferences.

The overall aim is to enable patients who would prefer appointments outside of the traditional practice hours to have them. As the service will be provided on a network basis, actual appointment times at each practice are likely to vary. Some services may be provided via other practices in the group and at other healthcare settings. .

The purpose of this consultation is to ask for your views to help us shape this service. 

It takes about 5 minutes to complete and will close on 07 July 2022
