Appointment selection:

For the sudden onset of illness or emergencies of any type an urgent appointment can be made. These appointments are made with the doctor or the nurse using our duty nurse triage system. You will be assessed upon arrival and be seen depending on the urgency of your situation.

Routine appointments are 15 minutes with the doctor or nurse. These are usually not available "on the day".

The duty clinic is for people requiring an urgent, same day appointment. Your initial assessment will be made by a nurse who may refer you to the doctor - though not necessarily on the same day. There are no appointment times and waiting times vary. If you are very unwell, please alert reception when you arrive.

Appointments with our counselors are 50 minutes in duration and our patients usually have between one and six of these sessions. There is a waiting list. Please see the counselling services page for more information.

These appointments are all made by the Health Centre reception team. Please speak with one of our staff to arrange.

If you are uncertain whether you need to come in or not, ring and ask to speak to our telephone triage nurse. If the telephone is busy we will try to phone you back within the hour.

If you are on campus you are able to walk in and ask for an appointment. If there are no routine doctor's appointments available you will be seen by a duty nurse in the duty clinic, and if the matter is urgent, be offered a doctor's appointment.
