For non-urgent issues, please follow the guidelines below and choose the right service. An appointment may not be necessary.
This will help us to be more efficient by making an appointment available to you when you need it the most.
Please attend your appointment on time, if you are late you may not be seen. If you are not seen you will not be able to rearrange your appointment until the next working day-except in the event of an medical emergency that requires immediate attention.
Pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals who can offer clinical advice, over the counter medicines and their use, to effectively and safely manage a range of minor health concerns. They can also help you to decide whether you'll need to see a doctor. You don't need an appointment and you won't even be asked to make a purchase. Every pharmacy also has a private consultation area for you to talk about your symptoms in private if you prefer.
We operate a same-day booking system for appointments. We ask our patients to call us in the morning for a same-day telephone appointment. The clinician will ring you and if appropriate, will offer you a face-to-face appointment for later in the day. Our doctors have 40% of appointments in their sessions for their use only. These are used when they wish to review a patient again or if they need to see a patient following a phone call.
Where appropriate, we do have a number of appointments that can be booked in advance.
Clinical Practitioner Appointments
We continue to offer same-day urgent telephone appointments for minor self-limiting complaints that cannot be managed by the local pharmacy with our clinical practitioner. These are not intended for long term conditions.
Fleetwood Same Day Health Centre
On a daily basis, we can access a limited number of appointments for our patients who have acute self-limiting conditions to attend, these are useful if you need to book for later in the day - 8am to 10pm.
