SAME DAY APPOINTMENTS
If you feel your symptoms may require a same day appointment or you would like to request a home visit, please contact the practice on 01592 620062 and select option 3 between 8am and 11am to discuss your symptoms and concerns with one of our triage nurses.
Our triage nurses are fully trained to assess your symptoms and will offer self care advice or an appointment with an appropriate healthcare professional if required. Not every condition requires an appointment with a GP. Our Advanced Nurse Practitioner can see most conditions, can prescribe and can also refer patients if required. Our Triage Nurses are also Nurse Practitioners and run their own minor ailment clinics on a daily basis. They can also prescribe.
The practice is currently recruiting to our nursing team. Alison, Elaine and Nikki will be continuing to support all our patients on our triage line however, it may take longer than normal for your call to be answered. We appreciate our patient's support and thank you for your understanding.

You may be referred to our mental health triage service by one of our triage nurse practitioners, or by a GP. You are also welcome to request an appointment with our admin team. Our Mental Health Triage Nurse will be able to assess you and offer support as required.
