THE IMMEDIATE ACCESS CLINIC IS FOR MEDICAL PROBLEMS THAT CANNOT WAIT FOR A ROUTINE APPOINTMENT OR FOR SIGNIFICANT WORSENING OF AN EXISTING PROBLEM.
If you require a ‘same day’ appointment for a concern that cannot wait, please telephone us on 01664 503000. Attendance to IAC is by appointment only, we do not offer a sit and wait service.
You will be offered a same day telephone triage appointment with the Immediate Access Nurse Practitioner. This enables us to triage and prioritise the cases that we receive every day.
The IAC Nurse Practitioner will aim to support your request for medical intervention on this call.
The Nurse Practitioner will invite you to attend the Practice on the same day if they feel there is a clinical need to see you.
Should you need to see a GP, this will be arranged for you according to your clinical requirements, either urgently on the same day or in a routine appointment.
