If you need an urgent appointment you will be offered an ‘on the day’ appointment with the on-call General Practitioner or the Nurse Practitioner. The nurse practitioner has undergone extensive training enabling her to offer this service and is able to prescribe.
Repeat prescriptions and fit noes are classed as routine problems and should be dealt with by routine appointment. On the day appointments are reserved for urgent medical problem that need to be dealt with that day. Our experienced administrative team will help you decide which appointment is appropriate for you so please do not take offence if they ask the nature of your problem.
