Before your first appointment with us, consider what you would like to achieve from your visit. Do talk your options through with your GP and consider writing down any questions or concerns.  If you are feeling nervous or anxious, please let us know so we can accommodate.

What happens next? Combined Shape Created with Sketch.

Once you've seen us, we will write a letter to you and your GP explaining what we think and your options for treatment. Andrea will organise another appointment if needed. We understand that sometimes taking time off work for appointments can be tricky, so sometimes we will leave it in your hands to make a further appointment if the management plan isn't working well enough for you. If you're not sure about anything, Andrea is happy to field questions and point you in the right direction.
