Urgent Appointments

If you feel you have an urgent medical problem which requires immediate attention, you should contact The Surgery as soon as possible and advise the receptionist.

It is helpful if you would outline the nature of the emergency, so that the situation can be assessed and appropriate action taken.

You may be offered an emergency appointment OR an arrangement may be put in place for a member of the clinical team to contact you within a short time.

They can more fully assess your symptoms and decide on a course of action.
You should note that if an emergency appointment is offered, it will be with the first available doctor, which may not necessarily be the doctor of your choice.

N.B. Arriving at The Surgery without an appointment, does not guarantee that you will be seen immediately.
