Longer consultations are available if you require additional time with your doctor. Please advise the receptionist when you make your appointment so time allowances can be made.

For urgent consultations, all efforts will be made to schedule these in on the same day, or they will be triaged for emergency treatment elsewhere (i.e. hospital).

A cancellation list is also available. Please notify reception if you would like to be added.
