What is the triage system?

Triage Doctor

All GPs take turns to act as the Triage Doctor.

This is a service available for contacting a GP quickly if you feel you can not wait for a planned appointment.

The Triage Service is intended to help you if you have an urgent medical problem that can not wait for the next routine appointment.

The receptionist will ask you to provide a brief description of the issue to help the doctor who will be calling you back.

Your name will be added to the Triage list. The triage doctor will aim to call you back by 1PM at the latest if you call the practice between 8:00AM – 11:00AM
