Our Frequently asked Questions
Tenant Doctors in the Practice may be contacted during normal surgery hours. If the tenant doctor is with a patient a message will be taken and you will be advised by the receptionist when it is likely that the tenant doctor will return your call. Your call will always be put through to the tenant doctor in an emergency.
The Practice DO NOT use email as form of communication to our patients. Please phone the practice.
We are constantly striving to provide/ improve on the quality of health care deliverance for our patients. If you have any comments, suggestions or complaints, we like to hear them.
