Frequently asked questions
We believe it’s important for you to feel fully informed and confident while making decisions regarding your health or the health of your loved ones. To help, we’ve included commonly asked questions and answers from past patients. If your question isn’t addressed, get in touch and we’ll provide the information you need.
What are the Clinic opening hours?
Is there car parking at the Clinic?
There is a car park to the rear of the practice. Enter St Audrys Lane and you will see the car park entrance on the right immediately behind the building.
Although there is no parking restriction on Yarmouth Rd, it is a busy through road and, we do not recommend it for safety reasons. We also prefer you not to park in front of the neighbours' property.
For those arriving by bus from Woodbridge or Wickham market there is a bus stop immediately outside the practice.
We offer disabled access and full disabled facilities within the building.
Are your services covered by my insurance?
It is your responsibility to ensure that your policy covers you and you should update your insurer of your situation during your care, particularly if you are referred for investigation or other forms of treatment.
Is it necessary to see my GP first?
Many patients are referred to us by their Doctor, but it is not necessary to visit your GP first (except when a GP referral is needed for the purposes of health insurance). If there is any reason for us to contact your Doctor we will ask you first.
What can I expect from my first appointment?
What should I wear for my appointment?
If you have special concerns over what you need to wear or will be asked to remove please contact us before the consultation or ask when you first enter the consulting room. If you wish you can ask for a chaperone or bring a friend or relative to your consultation.
