I think their system is pretty good, considering the pressure they are under. Yes, "normal" appointment bookings can be 1 - 2 weeks. They also have the "emergency" system as described.
I went for the first time in 14 years (!) with something that really could not wait. Once I understood the "normal" and "emergency" bookings I opted for the 3rd option - the rather excellent Urgent Care Centre at Guy's
Be warned, if you are taking the mickey to jump the "normal" and "emergency" queues, you will quickly get rumbled at Guy's UCC during the triage process and sent on your way!
Anyway, just pointing out the 3rd option.
