Should you have a condition that cannot wait for a routine appointment, you will be able to see a GP the same day. As a general rule of thumb, please try to inform us by 11am if you require a same day emergency appointment. This allows the duty doctor to schedule appointments more efficiently, allowing more patients to be seen.
Anyone that, after seeing the doctor, and the doctor deems the condition not urgent, may have restrictions put into place regarding future appointment bookings. This is monitored closely as we feel it is vital that the right people are seen in the right clinics. We would hate for a real emergency appointment to be delayed, sometimes significantly, because a non-urgent patient was using the emergency doctor when they shouldn't be. If you are ever in doubt regarding the urgency of an appointment, please ask one of the team to guide you.
