All of our clinics offer booked appointments and some clinics also have sit and wait sessions when you can turn up during selected times and wait to be seen.

It's always best to book an appointment if you can – it’s the quickest and most convenient way of knowing you'll be seen on time by the right person.

Sit and wait sessions can be very busy, especially on a Monday and Friday, so you need to be prepared to wait patiently if you attend one of these sessions. Waiting times may be anything from a few minutes to several hours during busy periods. When you book in, receptionists should be able to let you know how many people are waiting to be seen before you, so you have an idea of where you are in the queue.

Drop in 'sit and wait' sessions can get very busy and the wait may be long, so it’s usually best to book an appointment if your need is not urgent.
