GP Appointments

GP practices will be closed on the three bank holidays (Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day) over Christmas. South east Essex has an extended access scheme which offers GP and nurse appointments weekday evenings and at the weekend all year round. If you would like to book an appointment through this extended access scheme, then please phone your registered GP practice.

Please note that GP practices will be open as usual between Boxing Day and New Year’s (Tuesday 29 and Thursday 31 December).
