IF YOU NEED AN APPOINTMENT, PLEASE CALL ON THE DAY IN THE MORNING.

This is a temporary change over the winter period.

ON-THE-DAY APPOINTMENTS

Please note that we operate a telephone triage system for urgent on-the-day appointments. This is due to high demand for these appointments. This means that the process is as follows:

1. Please call between 8am and 9am to be put on the Triage List

2. A doctor will call you back and assess your symptoms over the phone. If they feel that you need to be seen, they will book you an appointment for that morning to come to the practice.
