If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:00 if you require a home visit.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
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 surgery.
General Practice Registrars (Trainees)
We are a recognised Post Graduate Training Practice and as such, have a GP Registrar attached to the practice for a year at a time. All GP Registrars are fully qualified Doctors who have worked for at least three years in hospital medicine before coming to us. Many bring new and special skills to the practice. We would hope that some of our patients would agree to becoming the Registrar's patients for the year they are with us. After that time, Registrars leave to become partners in their own chosen practice.
