My Doctor has this policy that if you are not an emergency you can wait for 2 weeks or more. If you feel you can't wait you MUST ring between 8.30 and 9 in the morning to get an emergency appointment. Of course everyone is told the same so you cannot get through and if you are lucky enough to get through all the appointments for that day are gone by 8.45 and they wont give you one for the next day. No wonder the local walk in centre is packed and A & E closes from time to time it is soo busy. Is this the same everywhere or just here in Liverpool?
