Medical practice under fire over appointment wait

I have just rung O’Connell Street Medical Practice to be told that there is not a routine appointment for any GP for just a day or two short of three weeks.

When I said it wasn’t an emergency that needed an ambulance, I did feel it was something that should be addressed reasonably soon. Nope, nothing forthcoming!

I do wonder why there is an advertising campaign on national TV telling you to report any changes you may notice to your health to your GP – because in Hawick, chance would be a fine thing!
