INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS
When you book an initial consultation with the doctor, appointments are arranged to last ten minutes.
If you have several problems to discuss please book a double routine appointment. You may be asked to make another appointment if all the issues cannot be safely dealt with within your appointment time.
Your doctor may advise you to book another appointment for an examination or further tests.
If you have a long wait for your appointment, this will be due to your doctor spending more time with patients who require immediate examination and treatment for urgent conditions.
Please book a double appointment when you feel more time is required.
If you would like to give any helpful feedback, this would be much appreciated.
