Our appointment system aims to allow patients to be seen in a timely manner. Please help us by booking ahead whenever you can.  Appointments for "today" are intended for those who are acutely ill and must be seen "today".

A Doctor will assess all requests to be seen "on the day".  The receptionist will ask you for a contact phone number and, if you are willing to say, a brief description of your problem.  The Doctor will then phone you back and depending on assessment, may offer:           

i) Help over the phone

                  ii) An appointment today with a suitable clinician for your issue

                  iii) An appointment on another day

We can now remind you about your appointment by text. If you have a mobile phone and would like a text reminder please advise us of your mobile number.

PLEASE ENSURE WE HAVE YOUR UP TO DATE CONTACT DETAILS INCLUDING EMAIL ADDRESS
