Sick children need a booked appointment please.
Aug. 3, 2019
Sick children need a booked appointment on weekdays.
For several months we ran a trial to see if operating an urgent, walk in style clinic, for sick children, was welcomed by our patients. Although it was initially quite popular it had really quietened off. As it was so underused, it made more sense to redeploy our doctors into seeing patients who want booked appointments.
If you have a sick child who needs to be seen urgently, please phone reception to make an appointment. We hold back appointments just for urgent conditions, and these are not available to book via the portal. Please note, an urgent problem is something that really can not wait till the next day.
We always try to accomodate all of our registered patients in a very short time frame, preferably on the same day. We can not make the same commitment to visitors to the practice, but will see them if we have availability.
