Improved Access Scheme


Seven of your local Cheltenham GP surgeries are now working together to provide additional GP appointments for all their registered patients. They have called this group of practices the Cheltenham Central Cluster.

These appointments will be available to you and your family up until 8.00 pm Monday to Friday and on Saturday mornings.

These daily appointments are pre-bookable and will be available at the following locations:

  • Overton Park Surgery 4pm until 8pm Monday – Thursday
  • St Paul’s Chapel 4pm until 8pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and 8.30am until 1:30pm on Saturdays

Urgent appointments will also be available on Saturday afternoon and all day on Sunday up until 8pm in central locations in Cheltenham, Gloucester and Stroud.

Who will see me and, how will they know about me? 

All of our appointments are with a GP.

With your consent, they will have full access to your medical records, so you can be assured they will be aware of any ongoing condition.

If you do not wish to share your records, you will need to let your practice know, but this could limit the appointments available to you.

Please see this Data Sharing letter for patients. for more information, and the Patient leaflet provided by SystmOne (provider of our clinical system).
