PLEASE NOTE: All our morning sessions (Monday to Friday) are now walk in session from 8am until 10am. No appointment is needed. Nb Depending on the numbers of patients attending, the waiting times can be quite long.
The GP's will prioritise children aged 5 and under and any identified emergency patients.
We also provide telephone consultations during the morning Walk in Sessions for those patients who may find it difficult to attend. A GP will call you back to discuss your concerns and if necessary arrange for you to be seen.
We have extended the 'Walk in Sessions' to every morning in response to a Patient Satisfaction Survey carried out by our Patient Participation Group where over 85% of patients surveyed said they preferred the 'Walk in Sessions'.
