Continuity of Care

For your safety it is better for you to consult with your usual doctor for on-going problems or with the doctor who has been dealing with your problem. Therefore, unless it is an emergency and where possible, please ask to consult with the doctor who is dealing with your problem. This allows him/her to follow up your care and make any changes or carry out a treatment plan. Seeing a different doctor who has not dealt with the problem before may mean having to repeat aspects of your history, which may result in delays or the need for further appointments.
