KIKLANDS SURGERY

GP Emergency Clinic

 

Basically for everything else which you think is urgent.

We run emergency Clinics every weekday from 9am to12.00pm.

We class as emergency any condition which is causing you concern or distress, usually new conditions or an old one which has got worse suddenly. For example:

  • Tonsillitis,
  • Chest infections
  • Sick children
  • Abdominal pains
  • Skin infections
  • Cystitis.

 

You will be seen by the duty doctor or nurse as appropriate. There may be a small wait when we are busy but this is usually much less than you will find in Accident and Emergency.

We cannot deal with suspected fractures, wounds that need stitching or nosebleeds that won’t stop – these are best seen by Accident and Emergency or the Minor Injuries Clinic.

 

Unless your condition really needs hospital treatment, it is better for you to be seen in the G.P. Surgery – we have your records which tell us about your previous illnesses and any medicines which haven’t suited you in the past. You will usually be seen quicker in the G.P. Surgery than in A&E. If you go to A&E with a condition which could be seen in your G.P.Surgery this will cause delay for those who really do need hospital treatment.

Please keep the emergency clinic free for those who need it, don’t try to use it for routine appointments.

Our triage nurses offer telephone advice - between 8.30am and 12 noon, between 2pm and 6.30pm our receptionist would be happy to ask our doctors if you are unsure as to where would be the best place to go for your problem then please phone uson 023 92663368   and we will be happy to advise. Outside these hours advice can be obtained from the Out of hours Service 01962 718697 or NHS Direct 0845 4647.

 

EmergencyAmbulance Dial 999

Ambulance

When you think that the person’s life may be in danger without immediate treatment.

For example:

  • Severe chest pain- particularly tight or crushing chest pain
  • Severe breathing difficulties
  • Suspected stroke – Face fallen on one side, unable to raise both arms, speech slurred.
  • Patient is unconscious or very drowsy
  • Overdose
  • Major accidents and fractures
  • Severe bleeding

In all these cases dial 999 immediately

In other cases if you are not sure if an ambulance is needed then you are welcome to phone the Surgery for advice.

 

Please do not call an ambulance for minor illnesses or you may delay treatment getting to other people needing immediate help

But do not delay if you think the person’s life may be in danger
