This means that all patients are required to return to the centre to discuss their results during a consultation with a Doctor. You also need to attend the Centre to obtain any referrals, repeat scripts etc. as part of a consultation with a Doctor. Our Receptionists do not have access to your clinical information and are unable to take requests for any of these items.
