The doctors in our practice work as a medical team, so you are free to see any doctor of your choice. We would, however, advise you to see the same doctor for each medical problem whenever possible. This ensures consistency of approach.
Should your regular doctor be unavailable, one of the other doctors will be glad to advise you. Each doctor holds regular surgeries at different times of the week. The receptionists will find a suitable time for you. If your problem is genuinely urgent tell her so that you may be seen quickly.
