Urgent Clinician

This service is for URGENT medical problems only - problems that cannot wait for the next available routine doctor appointment

Only the urgent problem will be dealt with during the consultation - any other issues will need a separate routine appointment.

If the clinician feels your problem is not urgent, you may be asked to re-book into a routine appointment clinic. 

This service operates every weekday between the hours of 08:30-18:30hrs Monday-Friday.  If you feel to you need to speak to the urgent clinician, this will be via telephone triage in the first instance. Let reception know by phoning 01603 251600.

Between 18:00-18:30hrs you will need to call to speak to the urgent clinician if your medical issue is very urgent and really cannot wait until the next day. 

The receptionists have been instructed by the clinicians to ask for your reason for visit.  Patients will be dealt with on a priority basis and occasionally the doctor may be called out in an emergency, thereby increasing the waiting/call back times. 

Alternatively, you can visit the Walk-In Centre (click on the tab above for details...)
