Telephone the Surgery
Urgent appointments are for genuine emergencies that cannot wait until the following day. If your problem is not urgent have you considered alternative options such as a local Pharmacy or self care? There will only be sufficient time to discuss the one urgent problem with the Doctor or other clinician you see.
We will always see urgent cases the same day. When requesting an urgent appointment you will be transferred to a trained clinician to discuss your problem and if necessary arrange for you to attend the surgery. If you need an appointment YOU WILL BE SEEN. We cannot guarantee a Doctor of choice "on the day", you may need to see the first available Doctor or appropriate clinician. You may have to wait until the end of surgery to be seen by a GP.
If your call is not taken immediately you will be called back, usually within 1 hour.
