Beacon Medical Group has launched a new pilot service offering evening and weekend appointments to our patients.

As part of our commitment to improving access to our patients, Beacon Medical Group has partnered with Doctor Care Anywhere to offer virtual NHS appointments. This new service gives Beacon patients the convenience of seeing a GP without having to visit the practice.

This is a pilot service running from July- 20th September 2018.
Simply follow the link below to book your appointment

(Patients signed up will have access to NHS appointments up until 20th September 2018 when the pilot ends. We will be contacting patients for their feedback on the service.)
