We would be grateful if you would request sufficient time when making your appointment. If you have multiple problems to discuss with the doctor please ask for a long appointment. Minor procedures usually require more time than the standard consult so please advise reception when booking. These include: removal of skin lesions and insertion or removal of implanon, allergy testing, mirena IUCD insertion and iron infusion.
If you feel that your problem is more urgent than our first available appointment please advise reception so that we may be able to accommodate your needs.
