About Us

Appointments

Consultations are by appointment only.  When making an appointment you will be asked if you require 15 minutes (a standard consultation) or 30 minutes (a long consultation).  If you have more than one problem to be addressed or a complex issue you will require a long appointment time. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible.  This allows us to offer it to another patient. If an appointment is not cancelled with reasonable notice, the patient may incur a cancellation fee.

Please let our reception staff know if you require an interpreter, so that it can be arranged before your consultation.

You can book appointments anytime by clicking the "Book Appointment" button at the top of the page.

Urgent Visits

We understand that sickness can affect anyone at any time, and we will do our very best to accommodate appointments on the same day if required.  Please call our reception staff to discuss the need for an URGENT appointment for yourself or a sick child, and we will endeavor to help you out as best we can. 

If you have a medical issue that requires more urgent assessment, please call 000 or attend your local public or private Emergency Department.

After Hours

If it is outside of our clinic hours and you have a medical emergency, please contact 000 or visit your nearest hospital.

You will be advised by your Doctor of the approximate costs of any further investigations or treatment you may require.

Referrals

A consultation with the doctor is required for all new and ongoing referrals unless previously arranged.

Your medical record is a confidential document.  All doctors and staff are committed to our Confidentiality Statement which is available here.

 

A copy of an individual doctor's privacy policy is also available upon request. Additionally, computers are protected with full security and backups.  If you wish to access your medical records you will be required to make an appointment with your usual Doctor.

 
Results

Unless advised otherwise by your treating Doctor, please contact the clinic via telephone on 0733670333 approximately 3-5 business days after the test was performed (this timeframe can vary depending on the test requested). The medical receptionist can let you know if the results have been received, and if the Doctor has advised that a follow-up appointment is or is not required.

Your treating Doctor will not request a follow-up appointment unless further discussion/treatment is required. If your treating Doctor has marked your test result as needing a follow-up appointment, and you have not already booked an appointment, the reception team will begin making attempts to get in contact with you to do so.


We do not routinely give results over the phone except in exceptional circumstances where the treating Doctor has specifically stated to the patient that they will contact them to discuss the results.  Please ensure your contact details are kept up to date for yourself and your family members

 

Availability of Doctors by telephone

Doctors may be contacted by telephone during consulting hours.  When the Doctor is seeing a patient, a message will be taken and forwarded to them.  If it is an emergency we will notify the Doctor immediately.  Medical advice or information cannot be provided via email.

Translation Services

Do you require a translator? Enquire with reception, and we will get this arranged for you. 

Alternatively, you can access the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS) National here

We value your feedback. Please contact us should you have any positive or negative feedback that you feel is appropriate.
