Book in advance appointments – These appointments are pre-bookable up to two weeks in advance and are designed for routine GP reviews.
Daily "Walk in " clinics - If you find yourself with an acute problem requiring immediate medical attention you can attend our daily walk-in clinic at the Saxilby surgery. Instead of telephoning the surgery at 8.00 am to try to obtain an appointment you can attend surgery between 8.30 and 10.30 to add your name to ...the clinic list and wait to see the allocated GP.
Acute, appropriate problems include urine infections, chest infections, sore throat, ear ache, acute/new problem, rashes, pain/infection.
Inappropriate problems include ongoing problems, repeat prescriptions, sick notes, referral queries, more than one problem, medication queries, results.
If you attend the clinic with an inappropriate problem you will be asked to make an alternative appointment.
Walk In Information
We hope that the walk in system will free up pre-bookable appointments giving patients a wider variety of choice to attend the surgery with routine problems. Patients who currently struggle to get an appointment when they find themselves acutely poorly will have the opportunity to see a doctor and be treated on the same day.
Our nurses are able to treat a variety of ailments and it is often the case that an appointment with the nurse will not only be more appropriate but may also be available sooner than an appointment with a doctor. Nurse’s appointments are pre-bookable up to four weeks in advance.
Should you require advice or treatment for more than one problem, please ask for a longer appointment. Appointments should be made on an individual basis therefore please let us know if more than one person in your family needs to be seen.
If you require a chaperone during your appointment please let us know and we can arrange for someone to accompany you during an examination or private discussion.
