GP Extended Access Service

Appointments with a GP or practice nurse are now available in the evenings and at weekends for patients registered at this practice, these are called “extended access” appointments.

We are working with other practices in Bedfordshire to provide these additional appointments to increase access to healthcare at times that are convenient to patients.

When you call to make an appointment we may offer you an extended access appointment, this appointment will be at another practice and with a GP or nurse from another practice.

Our receptionist will confirm all of the details at the time of booking, and if you are registered to receive text message alerts, you will receive a text message to confirm the date, time and location of your appointment.

Extended access appointments are available at:

  • Shefford Health Centre
  • Ivel Medical Centre
  • Biggleswade

At the current time, extended access appointments are not available to book online.

There has been no change to normal surgery appointments which are available as usual. If you would prefer to see a GP or practice nurse at Arlesey Medical Centre, please book an appointment in the usual way.
