polyclinic

A proposed large, high-quality community-based NHS facility that will provide a broader range of services than are currently provided by GP surgeries in the UK. The first polyclinics are located in some of London’s most deprived areas, and offer GP services 7 days a week 8 a.m. (0800) to 8 p.m. (2000), together with services normally provided at hospital, such as outpatient appointments, minor surgery, blood tests, x-rays and access to pharmacy services. A wide range of well-being and support services such as benefits and housing advice, health information and long-term conditions support for people with diabetes and asthma are available; polyclinics offer these services within a single modern facility.

The polyclinics also offer a solution to the problems of GP access and stretched A&E departments. In a polyclinic, Londoners can get immediate attention for minor injuries and illness, and access many of the healthcare services available at hospitals; treating minor injuries and illnesses will reduce unnecessary trips to hospital. The first polyclinics were developed according to local needs with strong local support and clinical input, in various settings including new builds, extensions of existing health centres and hospitals.
