There is more demand for GP appointments than ever before.

Our GP surgeries are working hard, increasing the number of appointments to 29,000 per day across Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes. More face-to-face appointments are now available, unless patients choose virtual appointments.

How can you help your GP surgery?

  • Self-care or use pharmacy services as a first step when you feel unwell
  • Register to use your GP surgery’s electronic consultation platform or the NHS App for repeat prescriptions and test results
  • Be patient, polite and kind – our staff are working as hard as they can
