Weekend Clinic Changes
From this weekend (7 and 8 April), “walk in clinics” are being held at each medical centre ,on a rotating basis. This weekend Junction Health, 1A Trader’s Lane, Cromwell are on duty.
The clinic hours are 10.00am to 3.00pm. No appointment is necessary. Outside the clinic times patients should phone their own GP surgery where the call will be picked up by a call centre with nurses who triage the urgency of the call. Visitors can phone any of the clinics.
Please note that higher charges will be incurred at these weekend clinics.
Dunstan Hospital does not have an Accident and Emergency Department, do NOT present straight to Clyde. Please phone your GP, come to a clinic, or in the case of an emergency dial 111.
