If you are in need of emergency medical help, please call 111 straight away for an ambulance.
If your need is not urgent but you are still concerned by a serious matter and it is outside of White Cross Northmed’s opening hours, please visit your closest 24/7 walk-in clinic.
If your need isn’t urgent, but you’re still unsure whether to see a Bettr doctor or to visit a clinic, you might be surprised just how much we can take care of in an online consultation. Most common health concerns can be tended to easily and effectively. Even repeat prescriptions are easy via Bettr. (Prescriptions for new or restricted medicines might require an in-person visit).
If you have had an online appointment but your Bettr doctor thinks you do need to see a doctor in-person, we’ll refer you to our nearest clinic. Your in-person visit will be either free, or you’ll just pay the cost difference between your original online appointment, and your in-person follow-up. Your Bettr doctor may
refer you to a nearby clinic if we feel as though your needs will be better met in person.
If your health concern requires a physical treatment or test (like immunisations, a cervical, prostate or other exam, or skin tag and wart removal for example) it’s likely best for you to head into one of our walk-in GP clinics.
