Wednesday Closing

 

The Practice is closed ONCE a month for staff development and training.  Our Doctors, Nursing and administrative staff do need time to train together, which is vital to improve service delivery.  The next date is Wednesday 22nd May 2013.  We DO NOT close on other Wednesday afternoons.

Cancelling Appointments
If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone or use the link at the bottom of this page to cancel your appointment. By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot. Please note that the Practice has a policy for Patient who DO NOT ATTEND or fail to cancel their appointment.  Patients who continue to DNA risk being removed from the Practice.
Please keep your appointment, don't waste it.

Emergency Appointments
If you require to be seen urgently, please tell the receptionist the nature of your request to assess the urgency. This facility is for emergency cases only and we ask you to not use this service for routine problems

Home Visits
Home Visits are reserved for patients who are genuinely too ill to attend surgery. Please telephone before 10.00am and be prepared to answer a few questions to help the doctors plan their calls and to assess the urgency. Please remember the doctor can see at least four patients in surgery in the time taken to do one visit.  

 

 

Home Visits

home_visit3We operate a home visiting policy when required for patients who are elderly, immobile or deemed by the doctor too ill to attend surgery. To request a home visit you need to telephone the Practice before 10.00 am and unless it is an emergency, please give details and a brief description of the problem to enable the doctor to determine the degree of urgency.

A doctor or nurse may telephone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice or it might appropriate to send a nurse or arrange a hospital attendance.

Remember, each home visit takes four or five times as long as a surgery consultation so we appreciate if patients try as hard as possible to come to the Practice. Visits are at the discretion of the Doctors.
