Our GP Extended Access (GPEA) service was featured in a film by the NHS Health London Partnership, Commissioning Framework. Presented by our very own Aaron Hamilton, Head of Operations at One Health Lewisham, the film explains how the GP (GPEA) service works and about being a GP provider.
Aaron said, “Our service is making a huge impact to practices in Lewisham by helping to manage the demand for GP appointments. Our services offers GP appointments which are the same as seeing your normal GP as well as nurse appointments which can offer treatments such as ear syringing, leg ulcers and general wound care. This means that local GPs have more time to see patients with complex illnesses and long term conditions, those that need more of their time”.
The GPEA service was launched in April 2017 and in November it moved to a new purpose built suite on the Lewisham Hospital site. It offers GP appointments from 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week which are pre-bookable through your GP practice.
Healthy London Partnership is a partnership of London’s NHS , London Councils , Public Health England , Mayor of London , plus other organisations and individuals working together to make London the world’s healthiest city.
