If the problem is urgent please contact reception and we will do our best to assist you. There is always a Doctor on call.
While you are free to attend any of the doctors in the practice, it is often best to follow illnesses through with the same doctor, where possible. If the doctor of choice is not available you may see one of the other doctors or wait until your own doctor is available.
