Urgent appointments

Widcombe Surgery runs an emergency surgery on weekdays from 08:30 – 10:30. The purpose of the emergency surgery is for patients who urgently need to consult with a doctor on the same day when there are no appointments available. It is not appropriate for patients to use these appointments to request sickness certificates or repeat medication. It is also not appropriate for long standing problems which may require a longer appointment slot. It is not possible to specify which doctor you will see at the emergency surgery.

All urgent appointments are by telephone and we do not offer a walk in and wait service. Please call the surgery to request a call back with a doctor. If following your call the GP feels they need to see you face to face they will give you a time to come to the surgery.

You can also call NHS 111 for general medical advice.
