WALK-IN EMERGENCY CLINIC - In response to complaints and suggestions about the appointment system, the Practice has chosen to adopt a walk-in emergency surgery.  Any patient with a single URGENT problem, needing to be seen the same day, may choose to attend between 8.30am and 10.30am on a sit and wait basis. Patients will be seen in order of priority.
