SATURDAY CLINICS

PEGASUS PRIMARY HEALTH ORGANISATION (PHO)

As of 1 July 2018 Medical Corner Doctors will be a member practice of Pegasus PHO. You will not notice any change to the day to day delivery of health care at the practice.

APPOINTMENT AVAILABILITY 

We are aware that it is sometimes difficult to book a doctor’s appointment, we are often booking up 3 days in advance.  Please ensure you book early for repeat prescriptions and routine appointments.  We do hold a number of acute appointments for urgent on the day care.  If you require an urgent on the day appointment please contact the clinic and speak with a nurse.

RUNNING TO TIME

It is always our intention to run to time and see you at your allocated appointment time.  We are aware that this is not always the case,  urgent medical need always takes priority and this may mean that there are sometimes delays with booked appointments.  Appointments are 15 minutes long, to help us run to time we ask that you discuss a maximum of two issues in each consult.  If you have more than 2 issues please book a double appointment  to ensure you have enough time (additional charges may apply).

REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

Please discuss with you regular GP to see if you are eligible for repeat prescriptions. The practice offers short prescriptions prescriptions for emergencies only, these can be requested via the nursing team.
