Quick consultant availability

At The Edinburgh Clinic, some of our consultants have fixed clinic sessions, while others prefer to offer ad hoc availability. What this means for you is that when you or your practice colleagues call to refer a patient, we contact our consultants straight away to find out their availability. From here we contact your patient to offer them an appointment. The main benefit of this system is that having strong ties to our consultants and contacting them directly means we may be able to secure your patient an appointment at the consultant’s next availability, which may be sooner than waiting for their next fixed session.
