Emergency appointments for unwell children

We understand that children can get unwell quickly and how distressing this can be. Even when all the emergency appointments are filled, the Practice has a policy that all acutely unwell children (5years and under) will either be offered a face to face appointment or triaged the same day by the Doctor on-call and seen if appropriate. Any acutely unwell children(aged between 5 and 11 years) will be offered a telephone assessment the same day and seen by the on-call Doctor if appropriate.
