Where can I park?

How far are you from the train station?
An 8 minute walk from Cleveland Railway Station.
What should I do if I’m running late?
We understand that stuff happens and you might be running late.
The key is that we ask you to phone us on 07 3073 3917 as soon as you think you may be late. The doctor may also say it’s OK for you to come 10-15 minutes late – as long as you ring us first!
What is your cancellation policy?
We understand that stuff happens.
Please call us as soon as you know you need to cancel.
Online Bookings may be cancelled by you up to 24 hrs beforehand.
Refunding the deposit from online bookings within 24 hr of the appointment is not simple. The stages involved are:
- We identify which of the two methods of payment you used
- Log into the payment portal and identify the payment via a search
- Finally issue a refund.
The process takes around 10-15 minutes. We only reserve this for genuine emergencies.
How can I transfer my medical records to you?
The doctor will require you signed consent. This will be arranged during your visit.
How do I get my test results?
We do not feel that ‘no news is good news’ is good enough.
For normal pathology or imaging results:
- We will email or phone you your results, depending on your preferred method.
- Please note that email is not regarded as secure, so you will need to accept a small degree of risk that the result ends up in the wrong hands.
- You may also see your results if you have registered with my health record. It takes 7 days before the results are viewable on my health record.
For abnormal results:
- These will of course also be available after 7 days on my health record.
- The doctor will either phone you are ask for you to come in for an apppointment.
What facilities do you have?
We have facilities for all standard general practice services.
Two rooms are oversized to allow the couch to be centred in the room for Skin examinations.
Clear & transparent.
