With life so busy, you may value seeing a doctor according to your own timetable ahead of waiting to see ‘your’ doctor.
Many of our patients feel the same, so we no longer require patients to see the doctor they are registered with. Instead, you can see any GP who is available at the time that suits you.
Of course, this doesn’t mean you can’t see your regular doctor any more. You can, but you may need to wait a day or two for an appointment that fits your schedule.
However, we think that for ongoing conditions, continuity is better for your health so we encourage patients to see the same doctor if they can.
Our after-hours acute service is available for when you absolutely have to see a doctor but are not sick enough for a trip to Emergency. We also run an acute clinic during weekdays, so you can rest easy knowing help is at hand in any difficult medical situation.
Should you wish to change doctors – from another practice to ours or within our practice – you are welcome to do so. Not all our doctors can take new patients but just ask us if you want to join MHC or move to another doctor within our practice.
No-one likes surprises when it comes to what we have to pay so at MHC we publish our fees. You will almost always know the cost of consultations and other services ahead of time. Those details can be found here.
