The email address that your message is sent to is not monitored over the weekend and is not our preferred means of communication. There is a risk that important clinical information sent to this address may be missed or not picked up, particularly time critical information. In saying this, we understand it is patient choice on what medium of communication is used. We urge all patients to carefully consider the issue of security before sending medical information via unencrypted email. Please do not use normal post for forwarding time critical information. We encourage patients to phone the practice or make an appointment to discuss clinical issues.
