If you are too unwell to come to the Practice, please telephone as early as possible, certainly before 10.00am, so that we can plan our visits. The Practice’s manned telephone service is available from 8.00am – 6.00pm, Mon – Fri, except public holidays.
We regret we cannot necessarily offer you the doctor of your choice, since we try to arrange our visiting schedule geographically in order to make good use of our time. Urgent visits requested after 11am are made by the duty doctor for the day.
When you request a home visit you will be asked for brief details of your problem; this is done so that we can assess the urgency of your request and plan accordingly. Ideally, patients should have someone with them when the Doctor calls when access to them is difficult.
