General Practice Forward View Improved Access:

Within the national General Practice Forward View programme, funding will be made available to GP practices within Eastern Cheshire during 2018-19 and 2019-20 in order to progress a programme of work to improve patient access provision to GP practices.  NHS Eastern Cheshire CCG is currently working with its member GP practices to determine how best to provide this additional patient access.  Patients are asked to contact their GP practice Patient Participation Group or HealthVoice if they wish to constructively contribute during this consultation stage.
