Home Visits

If you are too ill to attend surgery, please telephone before 10.45am to speak with the Duty Doctor.

The doctor will phone you back at the end of morning surgery to assess the problem and decide if a home visit is necessary. Requests received after midday will normally be visited the following day unless medically urgent.

Emergencies will be attended to immediately.

Lack of personal transport is not a valid reason for a home visit. 

Telephone Consultations

If you wish to speak to a GP/Nurse, then the receptionist can put you down for a Telephone Consultation and the doctor or nurse will phone you some time after morning surgery.  If you are given a telephone slot time this cannot be guaranteed and the doctor will try and ring you as close to the appointment time as possible, but will depends on any emergencies that come in.
