A Cleveleys GP surgery is now offering appointments on Saturdays after extending its opening hours.

Cleveleys Group Practice, at Cleveleys Health Centre, on Kelso Avenue, said the move follows requests from patients for the service.

Our patients have told us that they cannot always get to see their doctor on a weekday

Dr Andrew Whittle, GP and partner at Cleveleys Group Practice, said: “Our patients have told us that they cannot always get to see their doctor on a weekday because they have child-care arrangements or they work away.

“We are responding to that by offering Saturday appointments. Our patients were having to attend the walk-in centre instead of seeing their usual trusted GP and we hope this new arrangement will take pressure off the walk-in centre and give patients more choice.”
