Extended Access

In partnership with your GP, Cumbria Health on Call (CHoC), are offering evening and weekend routine appointments at several locations throughout North Cumbria.

You will be seen by a clinician who can access your medical records and will provide the same service as your GP surgery.

To book an evening or weekend routine appointment, please speak to your GP surgery. If you would like further information about this service, please visit www.chocltd.co.uk/chea
