PLEASE NOTE THE URGENT ASSESSMENT CLINIC IS NOT FOR: repeat prescriptions, sick notes, test results, on-going conditions, travel information or medication reviews. 

REMEMBER Minor Illnesses - Pharmacy First!

Pharmacists are experts in medicines who can help you with minor health concerns.  If symptoms suggest it's something more serious, pharmacists have the right training to make sure you get the help you need.  For example they will tell you if you need to see a GP.

Pharmacists are trained in managing minor illnesses and providing health and wellbeing advice.  Many pharmacies are open until late and at weekends.  You don't need an appointment - you can just walk in.

Pharmacies can give treatment advice about a range of common conditions and minor injuries, such as:

  • Aches and pains
  • Coughs and colds (including congestion and sore throat)
  • Hay fever and allergies
  • Flu
  • Earache
  • Cystitis
  • Thrush and period pains
  • Skin conditions such as mild acne, eczema or a rash
  • Sprain or strain
  • Teething
  • Red eye (over 2 only)

If the pharmacist is unable to help you and you need to see a GP the Urgent Assessment Clinics provide you with a short appointment for acute on the day ailments which require urgent immediate attention on the day.

These Clinics are for patients registered at Oulton, Marsh Street or Swillington Surgery.  To access the clinic we ask patients to book in (in person, not over the phone) before 9.30am, to be seen the same morning in surgery.  In very urgent cases (i.e. very young/old or sick patients) you may book in over the telephone.  When you arrive, if there are a lot of people ahead of you in the queue, you will be given an approximate time to be seen and you may either sit and wait or return to the surgery within good time of your anticipated appointment time. 

If you feel increasing ill while waiting or if you are concerned about a child, please tell the receptionist - they can only help if they know.
