Same day appointments with a doctor

Appointments for consultation with a doctor are available from 08:30 until 17:30.  

If you phone between 08.00-09:00 Monday to Friday we will usually be able to offer you an appointment that day, or a phone call to be able to discuss the problem with a doctor.

Each GP appointement is 10 minutes long. If you wish to have 20 minutes you should ask for a double appointement when you book.

The majority of people are keen to have their health concerns dealt with promptly. For this reason most of our appointments are “bookable on the day”. On very busy days the receptionist may not be able to immediately offer you an appointment on the same day. In this situation you will be offered two choices; book an appointment in advance or have the doctor phone you back. If you choose to have the doctor phone you back, they can either deal with the problem on the phone or arrange an appointment to see you.

Urgent Problems

If you believe the problem is urgent and you have to be seen that day by us, then we will always accommodate you and fit you in as an emergency no matter what time you phone.


If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
