WE APPRECIATE YOUR COOPERATION & UNDERSTANDING AT THIS TIME.
Getting the most out of your consultation
The average GP consultation in the UK is about 7 minutes long. At Wapping Health Centre we provide longer Appointments at 10 minute intervals, with catch up longer appointments also added to the surgeries. We would very much like to offer longer appointments but this would affect the number of people that could be seen in a surgery. In an effort to maximise what can be achieved in your consultation, we put forward a number of suggestions.
