We can also request your notes from your previous doctor:

Your first consultation will be an extended 30 minute appointment, preferably after your notes have been received, so the doctor can familiarise themselves with you.

Consultations are by 15 minute appointment, or longer if required (although you may be charged for the extra time).

PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT:
Failure to provide all relevant documentation and information will result in you remaining as a casual patient (and charged accordingly) until the enrolment process is fully complete.

We do not run accounts, so payment is required at time of consultation. Please see here for information regarding fees.

To make an appointment, phone 07 865 8032 between 8.30am and 5.30pm,  Monday to Friday

Please let the receptionist know if your appointment is urgent, or if it requires extra time eg., an insurance medical or driving licence.

If you are unable to keep your appointment, please notify us as soon as possible as appointments are in high demand.

The doctors and nurses will do their best to see you on time but please understand that sometimes emergencies occur and these will take precedence.

You will be informed if there is a delay.
