We have been running ‘sit and wait’ clinics since June and we are getting some excellent feedback from patients.

Please read the 'Walk in Sit and Wait Clinic information Booklet' here that explains how these clinics are managed.

Despite us having a number of on the day appointments, we understand how frustrating it can be when you ring at 8 o’clock in the morning and sometimes all our appointments are already taken! This new sit and wait clinic is a trial to see if we can address your urgent needs on the day of your choice! We acknowledge that sometimes its not an urgent problem, but it’s the only day which you have free time to come and see the doctor. This is why any problem is valid for the sit and wait clinic. Our aim is to see every patient on the day of their choice and prevent you from having to ring back again and again to try and secure an urgent or convenient appointment.

We understand that these clinics mean you may have a longer waiting time than usual and we acknowledge this may be frustrating in some cases but we aim to make your wait as comfortable as possible.

We would like to thank you for your continued support at Whyburn Medical Practice and welcome your feedback and any comments on the new Sit and Wait appointment system.
