Appointments

Walk-ins

We normally require people to make an appointment. Priority is given to people who have made a booking. If you have an urgent situation we will try to make an appointment on the same day. No appointments necessary on Saturday afternoon, Sundays or public holidays. Just walk-in to see one of our GPs.

 

Appointments

Our appointment system caters for urgent, non urgent, complex, planned chronic care and preventative healthcare. If you need more time with your GP, please book a long consultation. Urgent appointments will be seen by the next available GP. Please advise reception if you believe you require an urgent appointment. Urgent appointments will be triaged by the nurse on duty.
