The Speedwell Practice

Same Day Appointments




As part of an on-going review of our appointment system and in order to improve patient access we will be changing the way you can book appointments.Patients need to ring at 8am where all appointments for that day will be allocated.


As we have a team of Doctors and Nurse Practitioners you will be asked the reason for your visit to enable our reception team to allocate you the most appropriate appointment.

The Practice is keen to ensure that patients are able to consult the most suitable clinician. There has been a public perception that nurses are second best. Research shows that nurses can deal effectively with minor illness and appropriately refer to the doctors if needed.


If you need to book ahead, prescription queries or get results please telephone after 10.30am. We will be unable to deal with the request before then.

Same day appointments are for urgent medical problems and NOT for repeat prescriptions, sick notes or routine referrals.
