The First Appointment

After your medical file from your previous GP has arrived, we will ask you to make a New Patient appointment with a nurse. We cannot normally see you until notes from your previous GP have arrived.  

The nurse appointment is up to 30 minutes long and she will go through your medical records with you.  Once this is completed, you can make a doctor's appointment as required.
