Comprehensive patient care
At Albert Road General Practice, we believe quality health care cannot be rushed, and that it takes time to properly explore a person’s health from the big picture. Our default is to book new patients for 30 minute consultations and, where time permits, a 20 minute consultation as the standard length for existing patients.
A ‘brief’ appointment of less than 15 minutes may be appropriate after a therapeutic relationship has been established and if only fairly simple issues need to be discussed.
We consider all appointments with patients as a chance to not only solve the issues brought by our patients but also to actively seek out other areas of health we can optimise, including:
- regularly reviewing past history
- discussing family history of medical illness
- ensuring appropriate screening for lifestyle related diseases and cancers are up to date.
Just like many other elements of our fast paced world, medical knowledge changes rapidly.
Our GPs endeavour to keep abreast of the latest in evidence-based medicine, so that we are well-placed to discuss various treatment and investigation options with you.
