Enhanced Access Service

Enhanced Access Service

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

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


Further Information

Where and when is the service held?

The new service is being delivered from three locations within the borough: Essex House in Barnes & York Medical Practice in Twickenham.

Session times

Saturday sessions are be delivered from 8am to 8pm.

How many shifts will I be expected to work?

Once a member of staff has completed the on-boarding process, they 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.

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 RGPA’s online training system in order to complete the required training.
