The practice primarily works on an appointment basis. Walk-in patients are welcomed; however, patients with appointments will be given priority. Please contact the practice to make an appointment.
Do I need a long consultation?
Standard appointments are 15 minutes in duration. Some services like pap smears, health assessments, skin checks, or if you have a number of complex concerns to discuss with your GP, may need longer appointments (30 minutes).
How are diagnostic test results managed?
Test results are only given to the patient concerned. Patients will be asked to make an appointment with their Doctor to follow up on the results. Results will not be given over the phone.
How do I get a medical certificate?
Medical Certificates can be provided by your doctor following a consultation, unfortunately they cannot be backdated. Please try to present early in your illness should you require this service.
Is it possible to have telephone consultations?
Emergency Phone calls will be forwarded directly to the Doctor; however, it is unsafe to consult on an illness over the phone. In keeping with our philosophy of best practice, telephone consultations will not be carried out and patients are encouraged to make an appointment with the receptionist.
