What to expect on the day

Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to allow for ‘check-in’ at reception. You will be asked to complete a New Patient Registration form on arrival if you haven’t already done so.

The duration of your appointment will be determined by the complexity of your condition, however new consultations are usually 30-60 minutes. In some cases, a second appointment may be offered to discuss matters requiring more time for reflection on treatment options or further test results.

Dr Lancashire will conduct a full medical history and examination. He will discuss the findings of the consultation with you and if further appointments, surgery or medications are required these will be explained. Where surgery is recommended, Dr Lancashire will discuss the procedure with you, guide you through a consent process and answer any questions you may have. After your appointment, Dr Lancashire will liaise with your referring doctor and any other relevant parties.

Rescheduling or running late

If you need to reschedule your appointment, please phone reception on (07) 3054 0694 as soon as possible so a new appointment can be made and your position can be offered to someone else. If you are running late for your appointment, please phone reception to let them know. We will always do our best to accommodate.
