Consultations

CONSULTATIONS
Our practice is committed to providing comprehensive general practice care to individuals, couples and families.

Please phone to make appointments. We will always try to fit you in straight away if it is urgent. If you have several problems, or a complex problem, you may need a long appointment. Please ask the receptionist.

If you need a home visit, phone before 12 noon if possible.

Dr Scholem sometimes runs late. If the wait after your booked appointment time is likely to be more than 20mins, we invite you to enjoy a complimentary tea, coffee or hot chocolate Coffeecup at the Kyoto Emporium – which is the cafè across the road. If you leave us your mobile phone number we’ll give you a call when it’s time to come back.

For urgent after-hours home visits phone the surgery: 98781170. The answering machine message will explain how to contact Dr Scholem.

When you phone for non urgent matters or queries, if it is a matter Dr Scholem needs to answer, the receptionist will give you a time to phone back or take your details for Dr Scholem to call you back at a convenient time.
