Please arrive on time or if possible a little early for your appointment so we can update any contact details that might have changed.
Unexpected urgent problems or emergencies affecting other patients will sometimes occur and may delay the time you see your doctor. If you think you have been waiting too long please tell one of our receptionists.
Each family member should have their own appointment time.
Please turn off your cell phone during consultation time.
All our patients have the right to have a chaperone present during examinations if they wish. You may wish to bring a support person with you or have a nurse chaperone. Please ask your doctor or practice nurse.
