Telephone triage appointments at Driffield and Wetwang can be made by calling 01377 243055 or by booking online at patientaccess.com or by using the NHS app.
The telephone appointments are made available to patients with an acute condition that require the SAME DAY attention of the doctor or nurse. We advise ringing as close to 8am as possible to book a SAME DAY telephone appointment. These appointments are not available to book online.
Our highly trained administration staff will ask you why you need an appointment. This is simply to direct you to the most appropriate clinician. It may not always be necessary to speak with a GP, we are very fortunate to have an excellent nursing team including 2 Nurse Prescribers.
The practice is not always able to offer you the clinician of your choice with same day booking, if you have an acute problem, requiring a same day telephone appointment, you would need to speak with a clinician with available appointments.
Upon speaking with a clinician, they will assess whether a face to face appointment is necessary and book you in as they deem appropriate.
Cancelling Unwanted Appointments
We have an automated appointment cancellation line which is available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
