REQUESTS FOR 'SAME DAY' APPOINTMENTS
We provide appointments for ‘same day’ booking. If demand exceeds the supply of these appointments the doctor will telephone you to assess your needs. The doctors have asked our receptionists to enquire about a very brief reason for the appointment request. This helps the doctors to prioritise patient needs. Thank you for your cooperation.
