Good morning.

Due to some unplanned absence in our clinical team today, we have a shortage of available appointments across YHP; this may also have an impact on the availability of appointments in the early part of next week.

Therefore if your query is not urgent you may wish to wait until a later date to contact us.

Remember there are a number of different ways that you can seek medical advice:

NHS 111
111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It is fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained advisor supported by healthcare professionals. They will ask you a series of questions to assess your symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care for you.
