NMC tries to offer a form of access that offers either same day or next day access to their own clinician. If you phone up before noon on any given day, there is a good chance you will be able to see a clinician either that day on the next. There are times, unfortunately, when for various reasons, this is not possible, such as vacation or sick leave, or during a seasonal influx of patients. We all keep some appointments free each day for this reason. Our aim is to try and provide a timely access to the clinician you knows you best.
