Same Day Appointments
We have a triage system to help manage the demand for same day appointments.
Requests for 'same day' appointments will be assessed by an Advanced Practitioner, who will ring you back; this means that some patients' problems can be dealt with over the phone, and appointments can be booked with the most appropriate clinician.
If the Advanced Practitioner feels that you need to be seen by a doctor on the day, you will be offered an appointment with the next available GP.
The Advanced Practitioner may ask you to come in for an appointment with him / her. Did you know the Advanced Practitioners can prescribe for a variety of medical conditions?
You WILL NOT be able to get a 'same day' appointment with a specific GP.
For non-urgent appointments or follow-up appointments with a specific GP, you can ring at any time during the day - this should reduce the demand on the telephones from 8.00am.
