FIVE practices will take part in a trial in which same-day appointments will be offered at Gosport War Memorial Hospital.
The five as-yet unnamed practices in Gosport will pilot the scheme until April next year. It will then be extended to all 11 practices in the town if it is deemed successful.
The project will see people ring their GP practice as normal, but if they ask for a same-day appointment they will be called back. If after an assessment patients need to see a doctor, they will go to the War Memorial Hospital. The service will be run by existing staff.
