Please note that same day appointments are for urgent problems that can not wait until the next routine appointment.
They should not be used to renew your repeat prescriptions or issue sick notes.
A telephone consultation may be more suitable for some of these.
The local pharmacist can help or advise you. Alternatively, contact NHS111 by dialling 111
What is considered an "Urgent" appointment?
An "Urgent" appointment is: Any condition that has occurred in the last 24hrs or that has quickly deteriorated in the last 24hrs and can not wait to be seen until the following day.
What is NOT considered urgent?
If you have already seen a doctor previously about the same problem.
You have had the same problem for sometime.
You need to discuss results or a prescription.
Some conditions can be treated by a chemist, such as eye infections, skin problems, perhaps speak to the them first.
Help us save time by:
Getting your blood pressure taken in the reception area; collect a token from reception, use the blood pressure machine and then give the print out to the doctor when you see them.
Please organise a urine sample if you think it might be relevant, i.e if you think you have a water infection / cystitis / pregnancy / kidney problem. Collect a white topped bottle from reception.
