Home Visits

If possible please try to telephone reception before 11:00 if you require a home visit.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.

You can be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.

If you are not certain , you can contact NHS  111  to access medical advice

Triage Calls

This is when there are  no more appointments  left for that  morning and you think that you may need to see someone  or speak to someone but you do not think that it is an emergency as such. We will call you back as soon as we can after surgery , and see if it can be dealt with by telephone or arrange to see you at a time that is appropriate  to the  condition .

Urgent Calls

We will always  deal with Urgent calls immediately  , but please restrict these to genuinely urgent conditions as it means that pre booked patients may have to wait while we deal with an urgent call .
