Whether you have a cold or a chronic disease, we’re here to help you feel better.
We offer appointments Monday - Saturday and will always try to assist you with an appointment on-the-day if your need is urgent. Our nurses are more than happy to provide you with triage advice if you are unsure whether you need an appointment or whether your health concern requires emergency care. If your preferred doctor is not available on the day you need an appointment we will do our best to offer you an appointment with one of our other doctors. Sick children are always a priority and we do our best to make sure they are seen as soon as possible.
We keep a number of appointments free for on-the-day emergencies and for any patients who are acutely unwell and need urgent care. We do, however, ask that you always call to book into one of these appointments.
