We continually monitor our appointment system to ensure that patients can book appointments in advance.
We also provide a number of on the day “emergency” appointments. These should be used for items which need to be seen that day and cannot wait. It is helpful for the GP / ANP to know why you need seen the same day and therefore the Receptionist will take a short history and enter this into your electronic patient record. This ensures that you will be seen in a timely manner regarding your problem.
