Hanway Road Surgery - Monday to Friday Mornings & Afternoons
Emergency Clinics are run by a GP and Specialist Nurse and are held every day at Hanway Road Surgery for patients registered both at Hanway Road and Stubbington Avenue, offering urgent same day access to those patients who are feeling too unwell to wait for a routine appointment. The types of illnesses that often require an appointment include:
- Sore throat
- Ear ache
- Urine infection
- Skin infections i.e. eczema, impetigo etc.
- Sprains and strains
- Sudden abdominal pain
- Emergency contraception (morning after pill)
- Chest pain
- Persistent fever
Receptionists will ask for some details about your symptoms so that they can give you an appointment with the appropriate clinician. Sometimes the GP or Nurse may telephone you in the first instance to obtain further information to decide on the appropriate course of action. It is important to note that Emergency Clinics are not for routine follow-up of test results, repeat prescriptions or to discuss any ongoing established illnesses and conditions.
