We provide appointments with healthcare professionals such as GPs and experienced nurses. We also provide wound dressing appointments.

What to expect from Your GPAC Appointment!

  • Appointments will be bespoke to your medical or nursing need, and they will usually be face-to-face, with a dedicated time. The appointment time offered is approximate and you may need to wait a short time until you are called to be seen.
  • If you have a dressing appointment, please bring your dressings with you.
  • Whilst every effort will be made to see you as quickly as possible, please be advised that there could be a delay and patients who are deemed very unwell may be seen before you are.
  • We can only provide a limited number of appointments so when all appointments are taken patients must seek medical advice either through their own GP if open, 111, their local Urgent Treatment Centre or A&E.
