Urgent Appointments

For urgent appointments we operate a sit and wait clinic at South Street in the morning and at Bishop’s Park in the afternoon. You need to arrive at South Street between 8am and 10.30am and at Bishop’s Park between 2pm and 4pm. The Clinics commence at 8.30am and 2.30pm respectively.

This sit and wait service runs Monday to Friday and is for urgent medical matters that cannot wait for an advanced appointment later in the week, and is for one medical matter only. If you have more than one issue to discuss please make a pre-booked appointment and only discuss the urgent issue with the sit and wait clinician.

The sit and wait clinics are for those patients registered with South Street Surgery. If you are staying in the area for more than 24 hours but less than 3 months you may be registered as a temporary resident.
