Emergency, On the Day Appointments

If you ask to be seen as an emergency, on the day appointment the receptionist will ask you for a brief history of what the emergency is that you are attending for. This is at the request of the doctors.

We have a Specialist Paramedic working with the practice clinical team and it may be that you are initially seen by our Paramedic rather than the GP. It may be that the Paramedic is fully able to deal with your presenting emergency.

Depending on your presenting complaint, people who check in before OR after could be called in to see the Paramedic rather than the GP. This will be the GP's decision and not the receptionist who took your booking.
