Extended Access

Getting an appointment out of hours

If you can’t get an appointment with your GP or can’t get there during the day due to work or other commitments you can use the Extended Access service.

Sunderland offers extra appointments seven days a week at five easy to access sites across the city – including right here at HYLTON.

Appointments are offered in the evenings from 6-8.30pm and 9-5.00pm on Saturdays and even on some Sundays and even on Bank Holidays appointments are available from 10-2pm.

This service is provided by GPs and other practice staff from across the city.

Staff can check your GP practice’s records about your health if needed, unless you have opted out of record-sharing.

These appointments are easily booked either through your practice or by ringing 111 who can also access the booking system.
