If you have just moved to Richmond and are looking for a new GP you will find that there are quite a number of them which can make it a bit confusing to choose. The place to start is by defining your own needs. Do you want a GP for overall health checkups or are you looking to manage a chronic condition? If you are looking for a GP for overall health reasons it isn’t very hard to find one. If, however, you are looking to manage a condition you should be looking for an expert.
Look into the qualifications of the doctors that you have in mind to find out where they attended medical school. You want someone from a well known school because they tend to be more reliable than those who went to obscure schools. You will find their qualifications on a plaque on the door of the practice. The doctor may also put up diplomas in the practice for all to see.
The premises of the practice also tell you a lot about the GP. If they are sanitary, spacious and comfortable it means that the GP genuinely cares about the health of his patients. Find a doctor whose premises have plenty of parking.
Many GP’s in Richmond make patients wait for days before they can see them. This is no good because we all get medical emergencies from time to time and need to see a doctor right away. As you shop for Richmond GPs you should look for one who can see you on the same day.
One such practice is Roseneath Medical Practice. They have well trained doctors, an excellent practice with plenty of parking and are able to see patients the same day they make an appointment. You can book an appointment with them today on their website, http://roseneathdoctorsrichmond.co.uk/.
