Appointment cancellation

We expect patients to return our exceptional care by cancelling appointments due to unavoidable circumstances 24 hours prior to the allocated time. This will give another patient the opportunity to see the doctor.

There is no fine for un-informed cancellations but repeat offences might make future appointments not possible.

Contacting your regular GP via telephone

Your regular GP will be happy to discuss aspects of your care or your family’s care provided it’s not a breach of confidentiality. If you call the doctor whilst he is consulting you may have to call again, or the doctor will call you back when he is free.

Drug policies & behaviour

Drugs of dependence like benzo diazepam, and opioids will not be prescribed at our medical centre unless the patient has been assessed on a few occasions by the same doctor and a valid health reason has been identified such as malignancy.

Rude and abusive behaviour is not tolerated such patients will not be serviced any longer and will be promptly asked to leave the surgery.

Patients also have to be respectful of the consulting doctor’s decision not to prescribe a certain medication. An example, a patient is diagnosed with a viral head cold, and they are unhappy with the doctor’s refusal to give them antibiotics.

Results Advice

To protect your privacy and ensure that all results are managed in accordance with Best Practice, Unique Medical is unable to provide results over the phone. Please ensure the following appointment is made with your doctor within 2-3 days.
