Minor Illness

Please be mindful of the local Clinical Commissioning group Choose Well Campaign to help decide on options from where you may access care depending on the ailment.

Our specialist nurses operate a ‘same day’ appointment service.

If you have any of the problems listed or are unsure whether our specialist nurses can help and would like to make an appointment, please speak to one of our receptionists who will be happy to direct you appropriately.

At present we are not offering online access to nurses appointments, so please check this list before making a doctor appointment using our online services.

If the specialist nurse is unable to help you she will ensure you are seen by a doctor the same day if urgent or otherwise by appointment.
