Get my results
Please allow a minimum of five working days for most routine results.
Please allow a minimum of ten working days for your X Ray results to be received in the surgery.
Please contact your consultants secretary for results of tests carried out in the hospital, if you have a follow up appointment with the hospital we generally do not receive your results until after your hospital appointment.
Get the most from my consultation.
A standard consultation lasts 10 minutes. It is useful to bring your medications with you, and you may find it useful to make some notes on your symptoms, before you see the doctor. If you have a long problem list it may be helpful for you to prioritise, and deal with the most urgent problem first, and return to the doctor at a later date, to discuss your other problems.
We may offer you a patient information leaflet or direct you to an appropriate web site to help you further understand your treatment plan. We encourage you to ask questions about your health no matter how embarrassing or insignificant the problem may appear.
If you require a family consultation please inform your receptionist at the time of booking.
