Your medical record is a confidential document. It is the policy of the practice to maintain personal health information at all times to ensure that this information is only available to authorized members and staff.

Q How long it takes to see doctors?

We make every effort to see patients on time and appreciate our patents taking the same care. Unfortunately, due to emergencies and sometimes extended consultation, the doctors may run late. We appreciate your patience when it happens.

Q Are you sure about the continuity of care?

At the Doctors Mulgrave Road, we prefer to be totally responsible for our patient’s care. From practice to practice may disadvantage them. It is important for your doctor to know medical history in case of any emergency and to help get you an accurate diagnosis. This way we can continue to give you the best medical care possible. If you would like records transferred, please see our reception staff to sign a consent form.

Q Do you offer home/hotel visits?

We are happy to do home visits where appropriate. However, please come to the surgery where possible as we do not have to equipment available at your home. The time for availability of a home/hotel visit is made upon the doctor appointment schedule. We try our best to get them to you in the quickest time possible. Our home/hotel visits are not bulk billed, and a fee is charged on the basis of how far away you are and what the medical complaint is.

Q Do you provide response over the phone?

We try to keep interruptions during a consultation to a minimum as they can be very distracting to both the doctor and patient. Most queries are best dealt with by consultation, therefore our general response to a medical matter over the phone that our reception staff cannot answer, is to come in and see the doctor.

Q Do you offer prescription request?

We rarely provide these without consultation. Our policy is that the patient is asked to see a doctor.
