Urgent same day medical advice
Urgent same day medical advice is available by telephone, or by booking an appointment with our nurse practitioner in our morning minor illness clinic, or by booking an appointment with a doctor. Your urgent appointment time is approximate. On our busiest days you may need to wait some time until the nurse practitioner or doctor become free.
Our receptionists can let you know what illnesses our nurse practitioner deals with. Our nurse practitioner is able to prescribe antibiotics for new infections (chest, ear, throat etc).
Your usual doctor may not always be available to provide same day advice, at times you may need to see a different doctor.
Same day appointments should only be booked where you feel urgent care or advice is needed. Please telephone the surgery and speak to a receptionist. If you do not feel you need to be seen you can book a telephone appointment to obtain urgent advice.
Home visits can be arranged for patients who are too ill to attend surgery or are housebound.
If a patient has a temperature or a rash, coming to surgery will do no harm and will not endanger others, but please inform our receptionist on arrival.
Please note accidental injuries are not dealt with at the surgery as we do not have Accident and Emergency, Minor Injury Unit, X-ray facilities and resources. Patients suffering accidental injuries rather than illnesses should always attend their nearest Accident and Emergency unit for specialist treatment.
