  • Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm

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

To book an appointment please ring your own GP or 111. It is not a walk-in service, but patients can book appointments out-of-hours with 111.

What to expect from Access Centre 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.
