Hereford shoppers will be able to pick up a prescription with their groceries thanks to new GP services at a city supermarket.

NHS Herefordshire is set to provide GP services at ASDA, which will enable people to see a doctor without an appointment between 8am and 8pm, seven days a week.

The interim service at the ASDA Health Centre will start from December and will also be open over Christmas. Patients can use the Asda service and remain registered with their own GP.

A permanent GP-led health centre, which is likely to be at Hereford County Hospital’s A&E department, will replace this temporary service by next summer. If talks over the hospital site are successful, it will supersede a planning application to place the centre within the grounds of the Stonebow Unit.
