Patients may express a preference for a particular doctor or nurse and, whilst we will endeavour to comply with this, it may not always be possible as we are under increasing pressure to provide appointments.
Relatives or friends staying with you who become unwell can be seen as temporary patients.
We try to run to time as far as possible, but unfortunately an appointment can run over time, so please be patient with us if you have to wait. Please let us know as soon as possible if you cannot keep your appointment so that it may be offered to another patient.
