What to expect in your first visit

  • After booking your New Patient appointment you will receive a text message from HotDoc with a link to our New Patient paperwork. If you have time, fill this in prior to your appointment, otherwise we have hard copies of the form in the practice.
  • When you arrive a Nurse will take you through for routine observations. This involves recording information such as your height, weight, blood pressure, pulse and medical history in your file prior to you seeing the Doctor.
  • You will then have a long consult with your new Doctor
  • Please be aware that if you have a more complex issues that need discussing or forms that need compelting by the Doctor, you made need a long appointment or to come back another day if the Doctor deems there is not enough time.
  • Please note – restricted drugs such as Opioids, Benzodiazepines and sleeping tablets will not be provided at the first visit.
