The Duty Doctor deals with appointments for patients that are too ill to wait for an appointment on another day. This service also includes telephone assessments and home visits for those too incapacitated to visit the surgery.
Please note that this is a very busy service and we have to judge what is urgent and what isn't. This is for urgent appointments that cannot be booked as routine and require you to leave work if necessary and come to the surgery as guided by the GP.
The appointment times that we give you on this service are indicative only as the duty doctor can be called out for an emergency.
