Open Clinic Changes Posted on 25 Jan 2018

Following extensive patient feedback and record demand on the NHS over winter, we are making some changes to the Open Clinic to help it operate more effectively.  

From January 29th 2018;

  • Only people with urgent, on the day issues will be allowed to use the Open Clinic.  To help we have produced a list of on conditions which can use the Open Clinic, see below.
  • We have increased the number of pre-bookable appointments available, making it easier to manage routine problems.
  • If you don’t meet the criteria for the Open Clinic we will book you a telephone triage call with the doctor.  They will either help you over the phone or be able to book you an appropriate appointment.
