A standard appointment with a nurse or doctor is 15 minutes. Should you require a specialised service such a pre-employment medical or surgical procedure please inform reception at the time of arranging your appointment to ensure the correct time is allocated for your specific needs. Indeed, where possible, please give a brief indication of the purpose of your visit so we can ensure you are scheduled for the most suitable appointment for your needs. Try not to have a ‘shopping list’ of problems to ensure that your main concern gets due attention. If you have more than two concerns, we recommended arranging an extended consultation of 30 minutes to avoid having to arrange a further appointment at an alternative date and time to address all your needs.

We endeavour to keep to the appointment schedule but at times a consultation may overrun such as an emergency case or with a very ill patient. Please bear with us, it is not intentional, and at some time you may be that patient.
