Doctor's Appointment
Enhanced Hours

From October 2022 there will be a change in the way that the Primary Care Extended Access Service in Kingston is being delivered.

 

The new Enhanced Access Service will have an expanded scope to include appointments with a range of clinical staff, including GPs, nurses, HCAs, phlebotomists and ARRS staff.

 

This means that there will be exciting opportunities opening up for clinical and reception staff to get involved in the service and to enhance their salary.

Further Information

Where and when will the service be held?

The new service will be delivered from some additional locations. Below is a list of all locations that will be used:

  •           Surbiton Health Centre

  •           Merritt Medical Centre

  •           Kingston Health Centre

  •           Holmwood Corner Surgery

  •           Canbury Medical Centre (central Kingston)

  •           The Orchard Practice (Chessington)

  •           Manor Drive Medical Centre (Worcester Park)

 

Session times

Weekday sessions will be delivered from 6pm to 8pm.

Saturday sessions will be delivered from 9am to 5pm.

 

How many shifts will I be expected to work?

Shifts will be advertised via our Rotamaster system (full training on the use of the system will be provided). Once a member of staff has completed the on-boarding process, they will be set up with a Rotamaster account and will be able to book as many shifts as they wish.

How much will I be paid?

Our pay rates are competitive and will depend on your role and on the shift(s) you choose to work. The rate for each shift will be advertised on the Rotamaster system.

Are there any requirements that I need to meet before I can sign-up for shifts?

All staff must be able to show that they have the appropriate qualifications for the role they will be undertaking.

Staff must also have:

  • A DBS check that is dated within the past 3 years (with no significant convictions)

  • A reference from their current employer

  • Evidence of being up to date with all mandatory training requirements (see below). Where staff have already completed required training as part of their practice role, training can be transferred provided evidence of completion is received (e.g. training certificates). Where staff do not have access to training (e.g. if they are not currently working for a practice), they will be set up on KGPC’s online training system in order to complete the required training.
