Nurse Practitioner led “Minor Ailments"  Clinic has changed  

A number of allocated appointments are available on the day for the assessment of MINOR AILMENTS that are persisting or worsening "after an initial period of self-care."  These appointments can be booked by telephone or in person. When booking in the reception staff will need information relating to your symptoms and onset to ensure that the same day clinic is the most appropriate pathway.  These appointments do 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.

Given restrictions on prescribing medications available over the counter there is a range of self-help leaflets available at the surgery.  This supports research that shows in many cases people can manage their minor conditions if provided with the right information.

Thank you for your co-operation
