When you have an illness or injury that just won’t go away or is getting worse make an appointment to see your GP or a member of the practice team.
Your GP is your family doctor and will assess your health and offer advice, information, prescriptions and provide ongoing care. Your doctor can also refer you to a specialist, if required.
Until you attend your appointment continue with your treatment or self care as advised.
When arranging your appointment tell the receptionist if you need an urgent appointment and you will normally be seen on the same or next day.
