Emergency Appointment Slots
Our appointment system enables you to pre-book appointments. Our on the day appointments are only for emergency situations where you need to see a doctor urgently and you cannot wait for a pre-bookable appointment. However these ten minute appointments are used very quickly. In order to offer more appointments, all of our doctors now have two extra appointments in the morning and the afternoon. These emergency slots are offered to you at a specific time, are for five minutes, and are only for one urgent problem.
Please note the Surgery will close for the Easter Holidays and will not be open on Friday 3 April or Monday6. PLease ensure that you have ordered your repeat if you would otherwise run out over this long weekend.
