Yes you can!

  • Get a routine appointment within 48 hours.
  • Book an appointment a least 2 weeks ahead if you want to.
  • Get an appointment as early as 8.00am or as late as 8.00pm.
  • Book a GP telephone consultation if you find that more convenient.

In addition to the GP clinics we offer a wide range of other services including:  Psychology, Health Visitors, Baby Clinic, Antenatal Clinic, Family Planning, Blood Test Clinics, New Patient Health Checks, and Nurse Clinics.

Barkantine Walk In Centre

We operate a Walk-in-Centre  which is open from 8.00am to 8.00pm, 7 days a week including weekends and bank holidays. Everybody is welcome to use the service. No appointment is necessary; you just walk in and wait. Please note that at busy times the wait can be up to 4 hours. Please also note that, though we are open until 8pm, you may be turned away before 8pm if the walk in centre is already very busy.
