Same day access
This is offered at all three sites 8.30am – 4pm weekdays (although see below for practice closures on certain days).
Doors and phone lines open at 8am (8.15am for Student Health), and you can either:
1) Turn up at the practice and request an appointment. You can then either wait in the waiting room or come back at your allocated time, depending on the wait and your preference.
2) Telephone the practice on 0151 285 4578. A doctor will then phone you back to help you access the most appropriate care.
We try to keep an even spread of appointments through the day, meaning they shouldn’t all suddenly get booked up first thing in the morning, however there may come a point in the day when we cannot put any further patients on the list other than those in exceptional circumstances.
Due to the nature of the same day appointments there is no specific choice of clinician. The receptionist will ask you to give/write a brief description of the problem so that you are seen appropriately. Please be aware that the Student Health Centre is mostly nurse led, but if you need to see a GP at Student Health there are pre-bookable GP appointments available.
