Integrated Primary Care Access Service (IPCAS) General Practice Extend Access (GPEA)

On the 1st June 2019, The Southern Hampshire Primary Care Alliance went live with new streamlined service for patients in the Fareham and Gosport and South East Hampshire CCG areas. This service provides pre-bookable GP extended access appointments as well as urgent out of hours GP and Acute Practitioner appointments. What this means is greater availability of appointments outside of core working hours in order to address the health needs of the general public particularly useful for workers with little flexibility.

Five centralised hubs located in Fareham, Gosport, Portchester, Waterlooville, and Petersfield will operate on different evenings and weekends in order to enable patients from our 38 member practices to access appointments they may not ordinarily be able to attend due to work commitments, etc. In response to local patient and stakeholder feedback, a sixth hub is being trialed in Bordon from the 1st August.

In addition, the out of hours GP and Acute Practitioner service accessed via 111 means that patients can avoid going to the Emergency Department and be managed in the community as and when appropriate. The integrated nature of the service ensures that if a patient has been assessed by the 111 Service as medically unable to attend a hub, an out of hours home visit can be arranged as an alternative to a hospital visit.

The six hubs are run by reception staff, nursing staff and General Practitioners who all live and work locally and supported by three managers who work both remotely and on-site in order to provide the best possible care for our patients. If you are a patient at any of our 38 member practices and unable to attend your own surgery during core hours, you will be offered an appointment at one of the hub sites. To book an appointment please contact your GP.
