The Walk-in Clinic here at Westdale Lane Surgery is well-established, now operating for more than 5 years. It ensures patients requiring an urgent consultation can easily access care with the most appropriate clinician.
HOWEVER…. Please note it is for urgent problems only (i.e. that cannot wait for a routine appointment or cannot be sorted on the telephone)
You may be asked to re-book a routine appointment if it is felt your consultation is not appropriate for the Drop-In Clinic.
IT IS ALSO NOT FOR EMERGENCIES…..if you are suffering with chest pains, difficulty breathing, loss of blood, suspected broken bones or any other life threatening emergency you should go directly to A & E Dept at the hospital or call 999
You may ask to speak to your doctor on this number when necessary. You may phone at any time but the doctor will normally return calls either between11.00 to 11.30 am or 3.00 to 3.30 pm approximately.
If your illness is such that you are unable to travel or be brought to the surgery you may request a home visit. You may be asked to speak to the doctor to discuss the problem so be prepared to give a few details.
It would greatly help the doctors if all requests for home visits were received before 10.30 a.m.
Urgent Visits should be requested on the same telephone number. Remember it will greatly assist the doctor if you attend surgery whenever possible.
