We know the importance of getting a face to face appointment with a doctor when you need one.
We know that lately this has become increasingly difficult for us to achieve and we recognise this as a priority.
To enable us to increase the doctors availability for pre-booked appointments, the Same Day Clinic is a Nurse Practitioner led service.
We currently provide same day appointments for urgent or minor illness. The types of problems we would expect to see are -
Sudden illnesses such as chest or abdominal pain, new backache, eye infections, coughs, colds, asthma or chest infections, diarrhoea and vomiting, earache, minor injuries, rashes, sinus problems etc.
This service is not suitable for ongoing medical problems.
Patients need to book an appointment by phoning the receptionist. Patients wishing to be seen will be triaged by the Nurse Practitioner in the first instance and booked into an appointment as required. Urgent telephone advice is available throughout the day.
We do have to make changes in the way the clinic operates from time to time in order to try to satisfy demand – please enquire at reception for further information.
