  • arranging for call-backs from GPs
  • etc.

In order to assist and ensure you are dealt with efficiently, they may ask you for further information regarding the nature of your enquiry.  We appreciate your cooperation in this regards.

Our team of Receptionists are as follows and will be happy to help you:

  • Tracy Patterson
  • Gosia Lindsay
