Arriving At The Practice


There are 119 onsite car parking spaces and dedicated parking bays for bicycles and motorbikes. These are for patients of Castle Healthcare Practice, Muster’s Medical Practice, My Local Chemist (pharmacy) and Response Physio & Sports Therapy (physiotherapy).

Patients are able to park in the car park for up to two hours (clamping is enforced). Vehicles and their contents are left in the car park at their owners risk. Castle Healthcare Practice does not accept responsibility for any loss or damage.


When you enter the building via the front entrance or exiting the lift on the ground floor, Castle Healthcare Practice reception and self-arrival screens will be on the left side.

Self-Arrival Screens

When you arrive for your appointment please use one of the self-arrival check in screens wherever possible. It is very simple to use. Simply touch the screen lightly and select your date of birth and the initial of your surname. The screen will confirm your arrival to reception, the clinician’s name and an appropriate waiting area. If you are late for your appointment an error message will appear asking you to report to reception.

Please remain in the waiting area and keep a close eye on the electronic patient call board for your name to be displayed. The screen will show your name, the name of the doctor and their room number. Should you have any difficulty, please advise the receptionist.


When checking-in at the reception desk, the receptionist will ask you to confirm your identification details. The receptionist will confirm which clinician you’ll be seeing and will direct you to a waiting room area to wait for your appointment.

If your appointment is during the ‘Enhanced Access Service’, please go straight to Castle Healthcare Practice reception to check-in.
