Prepare for my blood test
The doctor or nurse request blood tests and they may be fasting or random in nature.  Fasting bloods are taken when you have fasted for 14 hours, you may drink water and take your normal medication.  Certain tests have specific instructions, and the nurse or the doctor will explain these to you.

Get the most from my consultation.
A standard consultation lasts 10 minutes.  It is useful to bring your medications with you, and you may find it useful to make some notes on your symptoms, before you see the doctor.    If you have a long problem list it may be helpful for you to prioritise, and deal with the most urgent problem first, and return to the doctor at a later date, to discuss your other problems.

We may offer you a patient information leaflet or direct you to an appropriate web site to help you further understand your treatment plan.   We encourage you to ask questions about your health no matter how embarrassing or insignificant the problem may appear.

If you require a family consultation please inform your receptionist  at the time of booking.
