Our General Practitioners
All our General practitioners are highly experienced and are here to listen to your needs. During your consultation they will answer your questions and tell you all about your diagnosis and any treatment or procedure required.
We understand that having treatment can be an anxious experience. At times it’s important that you have the same doctor looking after you throughout your journey with us. Your doctor will meet you at your initial outpatient visit, and will personally manage any treatment you need.
Your doctor will also continue to look after you during any aftercare/follow up appointments that may be necessary. All our doctors are fully qualified and registered with professional bodies, including the Ugandan Medical and Dental Council.

Midwifery and Antenatal Services
Our midwife is trained in normal pregnancy and birth and her role is to look after a pregnant woman and her baby throughout the antenatal period, during labour and birth, and after the baby has been born. The midwife is supported by our obstetrician/gynecologist and a few of our general practitioners to make the pregnancy as safe as possible. At this moment we offer antenatal care but hopefully we will expand our services in the near future.
Our general practitioners are able to cover most areas of medicine, however there are times when an expert’s opinion is required. In these circumstances, we use outside consultants.
Either the consultant will come to The Surgery or we arrange an appointment for you off site. In some situations our doctors will advise you to seek medical advice overseas.
