Seeing a Nurse or Doctor
Once you have submitted your form you will be asked to arrange an appointment to discuss your medical complaint with our triage nurse. If the triage nurse feels you need to be seen, they will arrange an appointment for you to see the most appropriate clinician.
If you are provided with a prescription from your consultation then you can take this form to our in-house dispensary to be dispensed. You will be asked to sit and wait whilst your prescription is being made up.
