Can I get an 'EMERGENCY on the day' appointment?
We release appointments every morning and afternoon on the day for more urgent medical issues. When you are booking your appointment, please let our receptionist know you are in urgent need of seeing a doctor.
At the Doctors' instructions, our receptionists will ask you the reason for you requiring an emergency appointment. If you do not wish to divulge this information, please let the receptionist know.
If all our urgent appointments have been allocated, our receptionist will arrange for a GP to call you back. You will be asked to give brief details in order that your doctor may prioritise their urgent workload. This is based on medical need.
Can I get an interpreter?
If you require an interpreter or a signer for British Sign Language, please inform our receptionist when you are making your appointment. Our interpreter services require 48 hours' notice.
Getting an appointment when you are homeless
If you are homeless you do not need to bring proof of identity, documents relating to your immigration status or your NHS number to register and have an appointment. Please let the receptionist know when registering.
Cancelling your appointment
If you are unable to attend your appointment, please let us know in advance so that we can re-allocate this slot and re-book an appointment for you. It is important you do this.
The most convenient way to do this is to register for online services.
What to do if you miss your appointment
If you miss your appointment, please let us know as soon as you realise this so that we can update your records and re-schedule an appointment with you, if you wish to do so.
