Your First Appointment

Your wellbeing is Dr Lancashire’s mission, and you can be confident in choosing him for your health care journey. His commitment to personalised, comprehensive, and patient-centred care will see you in the best hands from your first appointment onwards.

What to expect on the day

Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to allow for ‘check-in’ at reception. You will be asked to complete a New Patient Registration form on arrival if you haven’t already done so.

The duration of your appointment will be determined by the complexity of your condition, however new consultations are usually 30-60 minutes. In some cases, a second appointment may be offered to discuss matters requiring more time for reflection on treatment options or further test results.

Dr Lancashire will conduct a full medical history and examination. He will discuss the findings of the consultation with you and if further appointments, surgery or medications are required these will be explained. Where surgery is recommended, Dr Lancashire will discuss the procedure with you, guide you through a consent process and answer any questions you may have. After your appointment, Dr Lancashire will liaise with your referring doctor and any other relevant parties.
