General Practice Information | General Practitioner


NEW PATIENS

When you come to ther surgery for the first time I’m legally bound to ask you to sign a form in which you grant me permission to keep your medical records on file.
Furthermore I will ask you if you have a medical history or if you are taking any medication. Please bring current medication with you as well as details of existing or recent medical conditions. To prescribe medication safely it is very important for me to have this information.
