CONTINUITY OF CARE
Continuity of care
Our doctors are concerned with continuity in the provision of quality care. It is important as it involves ongoing health care management toward the shared goal of high quality and effective medical care. We encourage patients to stay with a GP or practice in order to avoid fragmentation of their healthcare needs.
