Our doctors work in a partnership. Although you are registered with a named doctor, you may see any of the doctors in the practice.
Whenever possible, we will arrange an appointment with the Doctor of your choice. At times, it may not be possible to do this and you will be offered an appointment with one of the other Doctors.
