Bellevue Medical Centre
For chest pain or severe breathing difficulties dial 999 immediately
If you feel you have an urgent medical problem the practice offers telephone consultations, GP triage / assessment and same day review.
Your receptionist can often help to direct you to the most appropriate service. They may ask you the reason you need to be seen. This is asked to support you in accessing the service that best meets your needs and is passed to the doctor to ensure they are able to help you appropriately.
Urgent care is provided by the Practice team and unfortunately it is not possible to offer you a GP of choice, though wherever possible we will endeavour to offer you preference of a male / female GP if the reason for your appointment is sensitive.
Urgent care is usually for one problem only. If you have more than one problem please tell the doctor you speak to or see. This will ensure you receive the most appropriate care and prevents lengthy waits for other patients.
