Non-urgent advice: Enhanced Access & Out of Hours

In Surgery Hours

(Mon-Friday – 7.45 am – 6 pm)

Urgent medical problems that cannot wait for the next routine appointment may be seen as ‘extras’ on the day of request. A specific doctor cannot be guaranteed. ‘Extras’ are seen in addition to pre-booked consultations so patients may have to be prepared to wait. Please do not request an urgent consultation for routine matters.

Out of Hours and Weekend

(Mon-Thurs 6pm – 8.30 am and weekends Friday 6pm – Mon 8.30am)
