HOW TO REFER

You can refer by email, fax or specialist directories (eg Medtech) to either location.  Don't worry if your patient isn't sure which location they prefer, this detail can easily be clarified with them later, when our receptionist is in contact to book an appointment.  Generally our receptionists will try to initiate contact with your patient after we receive your referral, but many patients wish to call themselves.

 

URGENT APPOINTMENTS are generally available - on Mondays and/or Wednesdays.
