Telephone Consultations

Our GPs and Nurses can often deal with a patient's needs via a Telephone Consultation rather than you needing an appointment to come in to the Practice to see them. Our Receptionists will be able to advise whether this is appropriate for you. Our clinicians have bookable telephone slots each day and this may allow us to help you promptly without you having to wait for a face-to-face appointment.

You may be offered a telephone consultation if all appointments have been taken on a particular day so that the urgency can be assessed.

Visits to your Home

Routine requests should be made before 10.30am by telephoning 01234 319991.

Requests for visits are assessed by the visiting doctor of the day.

Please accept that this is a service for the truly housebound only and all other patients are expected to come to the surgery for assessment. A doctor can usually see up to five patients in the surgery in the time taken to do one home visit.

We are also unable to access your full medical record when out of the building.
