Have you ever thought about how long an appointment is?
Routine appointments with the doctor are for ten minutes and for one ailment. This means that they has time to listen to what you have to say, take details of how long it's been going on and what else is happening that might be causing the problem.
Then, you may need to be examined, a test could be needed and finally you may need a prescription. All of this needs the ten minutes allocated to you. If you have more than one problem, ask the receptionist to book a double appointment so that you can have a proper discussion and can be treated for everything.
If, on the other hand, you have something that is urgent and needs to be seen on the same day where there are no routine appointments available, you may be given an emergency appointment. This is a five minute appointment and can only be for something that really is urgent. If it can wait until the next day then please book a routine appointment.
Children under 5 years whose parents or guardians feel that they need to be seen urgently will be seen on the same day or a doctor will speak to the parents or guardians on the phone to decide together what the best care should be.
Finally, please don't bring along the rest of your family for the same appointment time as the doctor will not be able to deal with four people in the time allocated for one! Patients who come in and stay longer than their allotted time keep others waiting past their slot and that's no fun if you aren't feeling well.
If you become unwell or are injured make sure you choose the right NHS service to make sure you get the best treatment. For more information visit: Choose the Right Service
