If you have an urgent medical problem you can:
Telephone the Surgery
Telephone 0117 957 6470 during our surgery opening times.
We will always see urgent cases the same day. When requesting an urgent appointment you must be prepared to see the first available Doctor and you may have to wait until the end of surgery to be seen. Urgent appointments are for genuine emergencies that cannot wait until the following morning. There will only be sufficient time to discuss the one urgent problem with the Doctor.
