Short-Term Illness

Have you suddenly fallen ill? We’re here to help you get better now, and stay healthy in the future.

Whether it’s a common sickness like a cold or the flu, an upset stomach or gastro illness, debilitating headache or migraine, or any other kind of sudden, short-term illness, we keep a number of appointments open each day for emergency bookings so you can get in to see a doctor as soon as possible.

If your illness has you unfit for work or study, we’ll provide you with a medical certificate, and we’ll monitor your illness as you get better to ensure your body is mending itself properly. We also offer practical advice on easy preventative health measures that you can work into your daily routine to reduce your chance of catching a common sickness.

Most short-term illness and common sickness lasts for less than seven days and can be treated with bed rest and by drinking plenty of fluids or, in severe cases, medication or antibiotics. Get in touch to make an appointment with one of our team.
