Consultations are by appointment.
Please make a separate appointment for each person that requires a consultation, even if you are seeing the same doctor. Every effort will be made to accommodate your preferred time and GP.
If you have a number of things to discuss or require more time with the doctor please ask for a long appointment.
Urgent appointments are available if you are ill or injured on the day. Our nurses will speak with you about your needs and organize a suitable appointment. Walk-in patients are accepted and will be appropriately triaged.
As your time is important, we do encourage patients to phone ahead of their appointment time to check the doctor’s progress. This will assist with avoiding any unnecessary waiting time for yourself. Please note that every effort will be made to minimise waiting times, however emergency situations will always be given priority.
Patients requiring forms to be completed are to make an appointment to see the Doctor.
If you or a family member requires an interpreter service we can organise this for you. Please make us aware when booking your appointment. For further information please refer to the Interpreter Service page.
Our Practice now has the option of booking appointments online with a number of our Doctors. Online appointments can be easily made at a time that is convenient for you.
