‘Sit and Wait’ Clinics
Sit and Wait clinics are now for medically urgent problems only.
If you confirm to our PA’s your problem is medically urgent for that day you will be asked for your details and a contact telephone number, the Duty doctor will then call you back to assess your problem and either give you advice over the telephone, organise for you to attend the urgent sit and wait clinic or advise you to make a routine appointment. The duty doctor will give you a time to arrive at the surgery, either on or shortly after 12noon. You will need to wait your turn to be seen. You will normally be seen in order of booking, although doctors reserve the right to see patients out of order for clinical reasons. You do not have the option to choose a specific doctor but you can ask for it to be male or female.
Please note that urgent appointments are strictly for one problem only, if you feel you need more time or have further problems to discuss, please mention to the PA when you contact the surgery as a routine appointment may be more appropriate.
If you later decide you do not want to attend, we ask you cancel your appointment as normal.
