We are changing our Patient Management System

This month we are moving to a new patient management system.  This new system is one of the most advanced clinical systems available.  The core focus of this new system is to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare service delivery.  We appreciate your patience as we upgrade and learn this new software.  This will be a big change for our staff, but with this change we will be able to streamline how we care for our patients, and provide better communication.

You may be asked to update your patient details when you next visit the doctor to ensure we hold the correct details for you.
