The practice has achieved the Cornerstone national certification of excellence.

Getting an appointment

Consultations are by appointment although urgent problems can be seen as needed. Each appointment is normally for 15 minutes and we appreciate a phone call if you are going to be late or need to change the time. If appointments are not kept without letting us know in reasonable time to re-book them, a fee may be charged. We will also endeavour to contact you if we are running late due to accidents and emergency cases.

It is very helpful if you can say whether your appointment is or a particular need such as ACC, ante-natal, insurance medical, contraception, complementary medicine, acupuncture etc so they can be fitted in appropriately. If you think you may need more time please ask for a longer appointment.
