Your doctor cannot give you their full attention if they are interrupted by phone calls. All medical matters must be dealt with by a consultation rather than by phone. If however, you are asked by your doctor to ring, our receptionists can either put you through to the doctor, or take down your details and the doctor will call at their earliest convenience.
Phone immediately and explain the situation to the receptionist who will either put your call straight through to the doctor, arrange for the patient to be seen as soon as possible, or arrange other emergency care such as ambulance, hospital assessment or admission.
