Doctor Appointments

As general practitioners the doctors deal with a wide range of medical problems. We also have other healthcare professionals who are highly trained and skilled, who work alongside the doctors in managing chronic conditions.

They are for patients who have problems which, for medical reasons, cannot wait for a routine appointment. You are required to state the nature of the urgent medical condition
  • Routine doctor appointments are booked up to one week in advance and are scheduled to last ten minutes. In order to work safely, punctually and to give adequate attention to each problem, we ask that patients bring only one problem to each consultation. Please do not be offended if the doctor asks you to book further appointments if you have several problems.
