On-The-Day Appointments - We offer a limited amount of on-the day appointments Monday to Friday. Patients may request these via telephone or in person at reception from 08:30. The appointments are given on a first come first service basis depending on clinical need. Patients will be asked at the time of booking to give details of their symptoms which will be passed to the on-call GP. An appointment will be given as deemed appropriate.
We are aware that sometimes it is more convenient and appropriate to speak to a patient on the telephone to give general advice or review certain medications. Patients wishing to use this service may request a telephone appointment when advised by the GP about their prescription or at any time they feel that this would be more appropriate for them. On some occasions our reception staff will offer a telephone appointment to patients if appropriate. This often allows more prompt assessment of certain issues.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
