How do I get an appointment?

Please call your usual GP surgery and ask the receptionist to book you an ENHANCED ACCESS APPOINTMENT.

The service may also be offered to you proactively if you are calling for a regular GP or nurse appointment (for nursing appointments, injections and dressings MUST be collected from the surgery and brought to your appointment).

​Only patients who have an appointment will be seen​.

This is NOT a walk-in service.

Online appointment booking is not available.
