Urgent Care

We offer a small number of urgent appointments each day.
Please call the reception staff on 3488711 and let them know you need an urgent appointment.

Should you be acutely unwell, please call an ambulance by dialling 111.

If you require medical care after hours please just ring our usual number 3488711 and you will be talking directly with a Registered Nurse, they will triage your call, advise you of the best course of action and refer you to the 24hr Surgery or the Emergency Department should they feel you need urgent medical attention.
