We listened to your concerns and have taken the following actions to make improvements to patient care where you feel it would be most useful:

Seeing clinician of choiceWe value highly the therapeutic relationship between patients and their GP and the continuity of care this relationship provides.

Reception Staff will do their best to assist our patients in making an appointment with their clinician of choice and we reserve a number of appointments daily for urgent matters. If your regular GP is not available, you may be seen by one of the other GP’s at the practice. Be assured that your usual GP will be notified regarding any important clinical matters that may arise.

We will also continue to encourage patients to ring before coming if a wait is expected.

If an emergency in the practice arises patients will be contacted to reschedule their appointment.

We ask patients to consider booking a longer appointment for more complex presentations.
