In hours triage service

Trinity Care, is the name of our in-house triage service. The service runs from Trinity Medical Service and covers patients registered at Crofton and Sharlston Medical Practice, Warrengate Medical Centre, Maybush Medical Centre, Trinity Medical Practice and Eastmoor Surgery.

During the day, anyone asking for a same day appointment may be placed on a triage list, to be called back by an experienced triage nurse who will make an assessment of your symptoms and will determine the most appropriate care for you. This may be a same day appointment with a GP, nurse, mental health nurse, assessment by a physiothereapist, advanced nurse prescriber, or you may be asked to visit a local pharmacy. Sometimes the triage nurses may suggest that you take some over the counter remedies and ask you to call back if your symptoms worsen or do not improve.
