Minor Ailments" Open Clinic
In response to our patient satisfaction survey have introduced a
‘MINOR AILMENTS ’Open Clinic led by a Nurse Practitioner .
If you have a new symptom and think you need to be seen you can present between 8.30 am to 11.30am, on arrival please report to reception and then wait to be seen. This is a DROP IN CLINIC so please bear in mind there will be a waiting time which will vary depending on the demand on the day.
Please remember this is a clinic for MINOR AILMENTS that ‘you’ consider need to be seen that day, it does not replace emergency appointments which require GP assessment or a routine appointment for on-going chronic problems. Hence the reception staff will request a history of your problem to ensure you are signposted to the most appropriate service.
Thank you for your co-operation
