Surgery Hours

New patients will normally be given a longer booking and are expected to pay accordingly. No concessions are given to first time patients.

Please notify the staff if your problem is URGENT so that they may make the appropriate arrangements. Emergency patients, such as fractures, burns, uncontrolled bleeding, chest pain, breathing difficulties will be attended to promptly. This may lead to longer waiting periods. We appreciate your understanding when this arises. Remember that next time you may be:

  • the emergency
  • the injured patient
  • the seriously ill patient
  • the patient needing extra time and attention
