We know delays can be frustrating and we do our best to run on time, but we recognise that our clinics do sometimes run late.

This can be for several reasons:

  • An unexpected emergency may have occurred
  • A patient may require more time than has been allocated
  • Equipment may malfunction
  • A consultation may be interrupted by other staff needing urgent advice or assistance
  • Patients arrive late for their appointment 

Sometimes, patients just need a bit of extra time to talk things through.

Single appointments are spaced at 10 minute intervals. Should you wish to have a longer consultation, please ask the receptionist when making the appointment, as this will help avoid delays for other patients.

We will try to keep you informed of any delays and are grateful for your patience.
