Do I need to be registered at one of the four surgeries where the Hubs are based to

use the service?

No, you can be registered with any GP in Walsall to access the extra appointments.

However, please note you will need to travel to one the four Hubs (listed above).

What if I’m not registered with a Walsall GP?

If you are not a registered patient at a Walsall GP, you will not be able to access these out-of-hours appointments. More information about these services can be found on Walsall CCG’s website: www.walsallccg.nhs.uk.

When should I use the Hubs?

The extended service is for patients who require a routine or same day GP appointment, but are unable to attend during normal opening hours. However, they are not walk-in centres and you will need to book an appointment- these can be booked up to 7 days in advance. Please note that both of Walsall’s urgent care centres and its A&E department will still be open as normal for people to use in serious or life threatening emergencies. 

Patient Access lets you use the online services, which include booking appointments, view test results, order repeat prescriptions, view medical record and updating your details. Ask at reception for details or visit https://www.patientaccess.com/
