Our facility

A purpose built facility, The Doctor House has a number of special design features.

  • High  ceilings and a Cardiffair system provide a healthy airflow throughout  the building. This ensures airborne pathogens do not remain in the  building and during summer faster drawing of air keeps a cooling flow of  air and avoids the drawbacks and high energy consumption of  air-conditioning.
  • Numerous obscure glass  windows, including fixed panes above the verandah and skylights in the  central rooms, maximise natural light and minimise the need for  additional lighting. The obscure glass allows plenty of light in while  maintaining privacy.
  • Medical records are stored on a server computer, which is housed in a secure, fire-proof room for the security of your records.
  • An  uninterruptible power supply with a back-up generator prevents data  loss during power outages and allows our practice to function during  natural disasters.
    A dedicated ambulance  entry with direct access to our treatment room allows patient transfers  without having to go through the waiting area.
  • A  dedicated drop-off zone at the front doors is for the convenience of  all and acts as a loading zone for delivery of both goods and people to  the front door.
  • Our fish tank functions both  as a divider between reception and the waiting area to improve privacy  and is for your enjoyment as well.
  • Our  treatment room has a sink with a tap operated by a foot-pedal for  enhanced infection control, three beds and a private nurse’s consulting  room.
  • An integrated security system and camera helps ensure the security of confidential information and our medical equipment.
