Prescribing Nurses

The prescribing nurses run minor illness clinics and you may be offered an appointment in one of these clinics.

Doctors' appointments are primarily for new problems and continuing reviews are carried out by our nurses. In order that you are given an appointment for the appropriate clinic the receptionist may ask you some basic questions. The information you give is treated in the strictest confidence.

Cancellations

Please be punctual for your appointment – there is no guarantee that you will be seen if you are more than 10 minutes late. Unfortunately many patients fail to keep their arranged appointments.  If you are unable to attend, please contact us to cancel so that the appointment is not wasted.
