At Clare Medical Centre, we offer a range of appointment types to help ensure we can provide appropriate services to all our patients in an efficient and optimal manner.

Longer consultation times are available, so please ask our receptionists if you require extra time. Every effort will be made to accommodate your preferred time and/or doctor.

While we will always try to accommodate all our patients, please keep in mind that our doctors cover On-Call duties, work between our three clinic locations, operate and assist in Theatre at the Clare Hospital, and are also entitled to their own leave which means unfortunately your preferred GP may not always be available at short notice. We will always try to find the most suitable appointment for you but we do suggest ensuring you are familiar with at least a few of our doctors, to help ensure we can provide you with an appointment that you are comfortable with. All of our doctors will be able to access your clinical file and we believe all of our doctors are brilliant, so hopefully you will feel the same.

We are happy for patients to contact us to see if there have been any delays. In the event of major delays, our reception staff will attempt to contact you.
