Continuity of care
If you have an ongoing problem, it is advisable to book to see the same doctor for review (unless there is an emergency). In this way, you can work as a team with the doctor and formulate a plan for your management. The reception staff will not automatically know whom you saw, so we rely on your help with the continuity of your care.
Some services such as doctors’ letters, medicals and the completion of forms are not paid for by the NHS. Therefore, to cover the administrative costs, a private fee may be charged for the service. For further details please ask our reception team or visit our website www.talbotmedicalcentre.co.uk. Please note that different surgeries may charge different prices.
