Extended Access Services
 
In addition to the practice’s own extended hours services, Portsmouth Primary Care Alliance (which is an organisation made up of GP Practices in Portsmouth) provides sustainable services to support General Practice and our individual practices and patients. Some of these services are shown below and how to access them; they are the:
 
Integrated Primary Care Service
 
This is a new integrated 24/7 primary care service is set to improve care and patient access to GP services in Portsmouth. The Integrated Primary Care Service started on 29 June 2018 and incorporates the existing Acute Visiting Service and Extended Access Service and adds Out of Hours provision overnight.  The NHS is linking these services to provide a ‘streamlined and unified’ new model for people needing urgent out-of-hospital care. You can now access appointments during evenings and weekends at a city-wide hub at Lake Road Health Centre in central Portsmouth.  Additional routine appointments will be available as well as urgent same-day appointments every day until 10pm 365 days a year. To use the new service, during normal working hours call the surgery and at all other times call 111.
 
Acute Home Visiting (AVS)
 
Since September 2015 the Alliance has provided an Acute Visiting Service. This now runs during the hours of 9am-6pm Monday – Friday (excluding Bank Holidays). If you are feeling unwell and are not able to attend your usual doctor’s surgery, you can contact your GP Practice to request a Home Visit.  Some patients will be seen by their usual GPs but if following a telephone assessment your GP feels that you are unable to wait until after surgery for a visit, you may be offered a referral to the Acute Visiting Service. One of the team of GPs will then come out to see you as a representative of your practice. The doctors work across the Portsmouth area to visit registered patients at home. They provide appropriate treatment which helps to both reduce attendances at A&E and avoid unnecessary admission to hospital. Patients referred to the AVS are normally seen quickly (normally within 2 hours of us receiving the referral) and are given the best care in the most appropriate setting.
