Our Appointment system offers the following type of appointments:
Triage Nurses will be available everyday between 8:30 – 10:30 to speak to patients who feel that they need an emergency appointment for that day. Patients phone Switchboard and their name and contact number will be taken for a Triage Nurse to call the patient back to determine the right person to see them.
Many patients wish to book ahead. There are a large number of pre-bookable appointments available for each doctor every day at various times. This helps patients who like to see a particular doctor or who need to be reviewed on a regular basis, - for chronic illnesses. These appointments can be booked up to 4-8 weeks in advance.
Telephone consultations are available to patients who do not need to be examined by a doctor or nurse. They can be used to discuss recent hospital letters., results or problems with medication. When making telephone consultations patients are given a specific time that the doctor will phone them.
