Emergency Clinic




If you feel you need to urgently see or speak to a clinician on the day please ring reception before 11am.

We run an Acute Emergency Hub Monday - Friday from 8.30am-11.30am for patients whose problem cannot wait for a routine appointment. 

These appointments are on the day only and must be booked in advance. We do not offer a walk in service.

All appointments are triaged over the phone by a clinician in the first instance. You will be asked to provide a reason for the appointment, this is needed to help us prioritise care.

Our emergency hub is provided by our Primary Care Network which is rotated over 3 sites:

  • Donnington Health Centre
  • The Leys Health Centre
  • Temple Cowley Health Centre

If the clinician needs to assess you in person, you will be required to attend which ever site is hosting the Acute Hub on that day.

Please note that if our emergency hub reaches its full capacity for the day, we may ask you to call 111.

Urgent appointments are not for repeat prescriptions, fitness for work certificates or signing forms.
