Clinics & Services
Continuity is really important to us. The benefits to both patients and doctors is huge, so we try and organise ourselves to provide the best continuity we can. All patients have a named GP, but there will be times when that doctor is not available. On the Helston site there are two clusters of GP's meaning that if another doctor needs to deal with your problem they are more likely to be aware of your situation as the cover will come from a limited number of clinicians.
The clusters are as follows:
Pink Cluster: Drs Garman, Tait, and Rintoul
Green Cluster: Drs Adewole, Armstrong, Kirkman, Gringhuis, and Faulkner
Porthleven: Drs Croker, Gibbons and Hyde
