We have had an increase in the number of patients calling late morning or in the afternoon for an emergency appointment. Our emergency clinic runs every morning from 08:30, you need to call or pop into the surgery on the day as early as possible, your details will be taken by the receptionist who will then pass the information you provide to the duty doctor to triage. You may receive a call from reception with an appointment time that morning or the doctor may call you directly.
You need to be available to come into the surgery that morning as in many cases the doctor will need to see you. This will mean taking children out of school and taking time off work in order to be seen.
An emergency is considered anything that you feel needs to be dealt with that day, that cannot wait for the next available routine appointment. This would not include any administrative tasks such as form filling ect. If unsure our reception team would be more then happy to help.
