Hey everyone,

I need to see the doctor as soon as possible (today preferably).

I am registered with a GP service but its in a different city in the UK 2/3 hours away.

How do I book a session with a GP today in London?

Cheers!
You re probably best trying a walk in centre as gps won't be open on Sundays or register as a temporary patient when they open again on Tuesday.

Correct, information found here: http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/AboutNH...esSummary.aspx

Alternatively, try ringing 111. I had to do so a couple of weeks ago and they were quite helpful.

Thanks alot for the help.

How long would you say the average waiting time at a drop in session is?

May need to get my blood pressure checked.

If you need a blood pressure check a pharmacy might do that for you?

my side effects are headaches, irregular heart beat, hard to get to sleep at night, fast heart beat, irritation/agitation.

Basically i took a nootropic, and I happened to feel the side effects (still after 24 hours).

I think a drop in surgery is best?
Yes considering the drug you took you need to see somebody so get to a walk in centre asap.

Just wanted to check in and see how you're doing. Hope the walk-in manages to sort things for you.
If you're told to see a GP after visiting the walk-in you can temp register somewhere near you to avoid travelling. You will stay registered at you normal GP, but also be registered at the other GP for a couple of months (can't remember exactly how many).

Good luck. Hope you feel better soon
