Triage System

We now operate a triage system for dealing with emergency appointments.   When you contact us for an emergency appointment you will be asked by the reception staff to give a brief description of the nature of the emergency.   This is very important to establish how best to deal with your particular situation.   They will ask also for a contact telephone number and the reason for this is that the GP who is on call on that particular day will ring you back to assess your needs.   Please make sure that we have your current telephone number (landline/mobile or both and indicate to the member of staff which number to contact on.   You will be given a time scale of within 4 hours but please be aware that you need to be stay by the telephone and be available to take the call from the GP.
