Wells City Practice does not offer a walk in service for patients. We do have a system in place for patients who feel that they need to be seen urgently and we can offer some "same day" appointments.
If you feel that you need to see a GP urgently please contact reception who will add you to our triage appointment list. The duty doctor will telephone you and if they agree that you need to be seen you will be given an appointment time for later that day.
If you just turn up at the practice then you may possibly be seen, but this will likely incur a long wait as the duty doctor will be telephoning and seeing patients who have followed the process above.
You can now view your medical records online.
