Improving Access to General Practice

From Monday 1 October 2018, you will be able to book an appointment to see a GP in the evenings or weekends at one of the new Primary Care Hubs within Healthy Living Centres across Medway. 


Primary Care Hubs are funded by Medway Clinical Commissioning Group ( as part of the national NHS Improving Access to General Practice Programme. The service has been developed to improve the availability of services you would normally get from your GP practice. 


You must book an appointment to be seen at a hub – appointments need to be booked in the same way you would book usually, with your own GP receptionist team. 


This service is provided by Medway Practices Alliance (MPA) (, a federation of Medway GP practices, created to enhance the delivery of healthcare services to over 300,000 patients in Medway. 


You must have booked an appointment through your GP surgery, as walk-in appointments are not available.
