Waiting Area 

At Methilhaven Surgery we try to minimise the number of people in the waiting area. GP waiting area’s can be hectic and at times an unhealthy environment to be in therefore we ask you be mindful of who you bring along to your appointment with you. Less people in the waiting area means there is less risk of cross infection. We do however understand there are circumstances where a family member or friend is desired or required to be with you.

During the consultation with the GP please respect the precious time you have in there with them and turn mobiles on to silent mode and refrain from answering any phone calls unless absolutely urgent.  

Thank you for your understanding.
