We are a family centred surgery offering a full range of general practice services to you and your family.
Consultations are by appointment only and we reserve 10-15 appointment slots for urgent "on the day" or "afternoon only" appointments. Our standard consultation time is 15 minutes. After hours care is done by Homecare Medical Limited, to whom the phones are switched over each evening and for practice meetings.
The practice is fully computerised so that all consultation notes, lab results, referrals, tasks and messages are done via computer; incoming typed or written mail is scanned into the patients' files. We can access broadband so that information can be sought during consultations and handouts given.
We have 6 GPs in our practice (see details below under “General Practitioners”). All our GPs work part time.
We have 3 Practice Nurses, 5 Receptionists and 1 Practice Manager; all work part time as well.
We are taking on new patients, but because we are so busy, we only take on patients new to the district, in a defined, quite tight geographical area. Doctors Hill, Johnson, McClure and Wang are not taking on new patients apart from family of current patients.
