SUSPENDED FROM 10 MARCH 2020
SIT AND WAIT SESSIONS AT BOROUGH ROAD ONLY
If you need urgent advice for a SINGLE NEW ACUTE ISSUE
Sit and wait session intended for patients who have a NEW URGENT ACUTE ISSUE that needs dealing with quickly and cannot wait for a routine appointment. Due to the lack of space at our Nunthorpe branch we can only offer these sessions at the Borough Road surgery, however all patients are welcome to attend regardless of their usual site.
CLINIC TIMES (BOROUGH ROAD ONLY)
Monday - 8.30 am – 10.30 am (Morning session only)
Tuesday to Friday – 8.30 am – 10.30 am & 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm
To make an appointment please visit the surgery in person during the times listed above. The reception team will allocate you an appointment on arrival. You will be seen as soon as possible however we will be unable to give you a precise time as this will depend on how busy the session is. If you arrive outside of these times you will not be allocated an appointment and will need to attend the next available sit and wait session. These sessions will be with the on-call GP for that day.
The sit and wait session offers a ONE PROBLEM ONLY APPOINTMENT. To keep the waiting time to a minimum we will be applying strict criteria and ask that you DO NOT ATTEND for any of the following reasons or you will be asked to re-book.
- Ongoing chronic problems
- For more than one problem
- For sick notes / sick note related queries
- For a repeat prescription / general medication queries and reviews
- For a referral letter / to discuss a referral
- For test results
For these we would ask that you speak to the reception team. They will either arrange a routine surgery appointment with the doctor of your choice or navigate you to the correct person to help you with your enquiry. If you have been seen in a Sit and Wait session please do not forget to cancel any pre-booked appointments that you may no longer require.
