guess im lucky, i can get an apt the same day as my docs operate a daily apt system, the earlier u call the better chance of getting 1, also they call u instead of having to go to them at 1st, if needed then u go and see the the same day.
i also use "patient access" the NHS online system, i can book apt online for a few days time and order meds online instead of calling for them.www.patientaccess.com
can take a few days to set up if u havent already got it but its worth using.
isthere another docs near u thats not so busy ?? we also have something here called "new doc", basically like A+E but for normal stuff, u may have to wait there for hours but u do get seen the same day.
