Home Visits

Our doctors typically see four patients at the practice in the time it takes to do a single home visit. For this reason, we ask our patients to come to the practice if at all possible. However, we can visit you at home if your condition means that you are unable to attend the surgery. Please call before 9.30am to arrange a visit. Please be prepared to tell the receptionist about your condition so that we can visit the most urgent cases first. The doctor (or triage nurse) may wish to speak with you to see if it would be better for you to come to the surgery to be seen immediately. Home visits are usually made between 9.30am and 2pm.

Telephone Advice

It may not be necessary for you to have a face to face consultation with your GP. Telephone appointments are available Monday to Friday and the doctor will call you at an agreed time. Please tell the Receptionist if you wish to have a telephone consultation.

You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it is not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
