Extended Access Service

The Extended Access Service makes it easier for you to get an appointment at a time that suits you, including evenings and weekends.

The service offers pre-bookable, routine primary care appointments with a range of clinicians including GPs, nurses and health care assistants.

This is not a walk-in service – you must book an appointment through the reception team.


The appointments will take place at:

The Oaks Medical Centre
199 Shady Lane
Great Barr
B44 9ER

Appointment times

Monday-Friday, 18:30-20:00
Saturday, 09:00-13:00
Sunday, 10:00-13:00

Will I see my own GP?

You will be seen by experienced GPs and nurses, but it is unlikely that you will be seen by your own GP or nurse. If you would prefer to see your usual GP or practice nurse, please book an appointment with us during our normal opening hours.

Will the GP I see have access to my medical record during my appointment?

Your medical record will, with your consent, be available to the GP that sees you, to ensure that they have the information they need to give you the best possible care.

Notes of your appointment will be sent back to your own GP practice electronically to ensure that your record is up-to-date.

An appointment with this service will be just like an appointment at your own GP practice.

Is parking available?

Yes, free parking is available.
