The Practice offers an emergency clinic Monday- Friday 3.30pm to 5.30pm for urgent medical problems. It operates on a first come first served basis so when we are busy the wait to be seen may be considerable. You need to attend the practice from 3.30 and can not book these appointments by phone.
You may find that you may be able to get advice more quickly from either a Pharmacy for many common problems ( many pharmacists can now also prescribe medicines ) or from an Opticians for minor eye problems (see web page) for many common eye problems like a sticky or red eye.
The emergency clinic is for medically urgent problems only and is NOT FOR :
- Renewal of medical certificates for ongoing medical problems
