Urgent problems WILL be dealt with promptly. If you need urgent assistance our receptionist may put your call through to the practice nurse for triaging. Please give the nurse as much information as possible so that they can discuss the problem with a doctor.
If the doctors are consulting when an emergency patient arrives, the practice nurse will initiate treatment informing the doctors immediately of the patients arrival. In the event of an emergency situation our treatment is aimed at stabilization and transport to hospital.
An out of pocket expense is payable for all emergency attendances.
In the case of a medical emergency, call 000 and request an ambulance.
