SAME DAY APPOINTMENTS - RING EARLY.
You can ring from 8 am for an urgent same day consultation. As the winter gets busier please ring before 10 am so that we can arrange to see you the same morning. It is much more difficult to fit you in if you ring late in the morning.
There is a new app designed for young people aged 10 to 24 years, check it out:
We now have a Facebook page which has some further posts if you are interested. You can also rate our services there :
