Receptionists/care navigators ask patients the reason for booking an appointment to enable them to book appointments with right clinicians and help you get the the most appropriate service to meet your needs. Our Practice is a multidisciplinary team of Doctors, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Associates, Clinical Pharmacist, Nurses, Paramedic and health care Assistant.
Doctors and experienced Nurse Practitioner appointments are mainly to deal with complex medical problems.
Please note that if appointments are not correctly booked then you may not receive the service you have booked an appointment for and may need to rebook an appointment with the right clinician.
