Appointments for a GP consultation are not necessary for consultations at the morning surgeries. Patients are requested to attend between 8.45-10 to be seen by a GP. If possible, please try to attend morning surgery, leaving evening surgery open for those at work.
Evening surgery is for appointments only.
An emergency is defined as an incident requiring an immediate "blue light" response, irrespective of source. For example, any life threatening incident or incident where the caller is unsure whether the incident is life threatening (car crash, chest pain, unknown collapse, fits, overdose). Not all incidents require an emergency ambulance. Common sense should be used but if unsure dial 999.
If a heart attack is suspected, dial 999.
