Noticeboard

Did you know that since April 2015, you don't have to wait on the phone to speak to your GP surgery?  Just like online banking, you can look at your GP records on a computer, a tablet or a smartphone, using a website or an app.  You can choose to: Book and cancel appointments, order repeat prescriptions online and look at part of your GP records online.  Ask at reception on how to sign up for these services.


Named GP - with effect from 1 April 2015 all patients will have a named GP who will have overall responsiblity for the care and support provided for them.  This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the Practice as you currently do.  If you wish to know who your named GP is please ask our Reception Team, GP or Practice Nurse.



Home Visits

homevisitsHome visit requests are only to be used by people that are unable to leave their homes, or are seriously ill.

Under our NHS contract, home visits are not an automatic right, and the doctor retains ultimate discretion over their necessity.

If you request a specific doctor, we will try to respect your wishes; however we cannot guarantee this choice.

Please try to request the visit before 10.30am on the day.  Requests after this time may be assessed over the telephone by a doctor.

Our receptionists will ask you for some details.  This is to assist us.  Not all medical problems are the same and some are more urgent than others.  Very urgent problems may be directed to hospital, but our receptionists will inform you if this is the case. 

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Practice..
