111 Copnor Road
GP Emergency Clinic
Basically for everything else which you think is urgent.
We run emergency Clinics every weekday from 9am to12.00pm.
We class as emergency any condition which is causing you concern or distress, usually new conditions or an old one which has got worse suddenly. For example:
You will be seen by the duty doctor or nurse as appropriate. There may be a small wait when we are busy but this is usually much less than you will find in Accident and Emergency.
We cannot deal with suspected fractures, wounds that need stitching or nosebleeds that won’t stop – these are best seen by Accident and Emergency or the Minor Injuries Clinic.
Unless your condition really needs hospital treatment, it is better for you to be seen in the G.P. Surgery – we have your records which tell us about your previous illnesses and any medicines which haven’t suited you in the past. You will usually be seen quicker in the G.P. Surgery than in A&E. If you go to A&E with a condition which could be seen in your G.P.Surgery this will cause delay for those who really do need hospital treatment.
Please keep the emergency clinic free for those who need it, don’t try to use it for routine appointments.
Our triage nurses offer telephone advice - between 8.30am and 12 noon, between 2pm and 6.30pm our receptionist would be happy to ask our doctors if you are unsure as to where would be the best place to go for your problem then please phone uson 023 92663368 and we will be happy to advise. Outside these hours advice can be obtained from the Out of hours Service 01962 718697 or NHS Direct 0845 4647.
