Test Results / SMS, Recall system
We will request that you return for results if we have ordered them for you. This cuts down on communication errors and misunderstanding. Under special circumstances if you ring for results, please leave a message with our receptionists and they will pass the details on to your doctor.
We also have a SMS and Recall system to remind you of tests, investigations, appointments and other health reminders. Please feel free to take to receptionist or your doctor if you have any concerns.
General practitioners receive many phone calls each day for a variety of reasons, we try to limit calls during consultations. If you wish to speak to your doctor, please leave a message with the receptionist and they will pass the details, if your call is genuinely urgent, please let our staff know, we will prioritise your call.

Our team will work hard to book you an appointment with your doctor of choice. All of our doctors value providing quality health care and working as a team. In most instances, you will be introduced to more than one doctor to ensure that we can provide you with access to health care when you need it.
