Home visits

If you are housebound and need an appointment, we will do a home visit. We will phone you first to understand what you need.

To request a home visit, it’s helpful if you phone the practice before 10am.

The practice has a policy for home visits requested by patients when they are bed bound, house bound or totally incapable of visiting the surgery.

If you are too ill to attend the surgery to see a doctor, a home visit may be requested by contacting the surgery. Whenever possible please make every effort to come to the surgery rather than request a home visit. This allows the doctor to spend more time with you and to have easier access to medical facilities to help deal with your problems. When a visit is necessary it is helpful if your request is made as early as possible.

The receptionist may ask you to discuss your request for a home visit with the doctor.

  • Patients are asked to phone in before 10am for a home visit.
  • The clinicians do the home visits or answer their queries over the phone.
  • The person taking the request for a home visit will also check that the patient cannot attend the surgery. If the patient is able to attend surgery and the problem is urgent, the person taking the call will need to discuss with the on-call doctor who will advise on course of action – urgent on the day appointment/telephone advise/home visit.

If you need help when we are closed

If you need medical help now, use NHS 111 online or Call 111.

NHS 111 online is for people aged 5 and over. Call 111 if you need help for a child under 5.

Call 999 in a medical or mental health emergency. This is when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk.

If you need help with your appointment

Please tell us:

  • if there is a specific doctor, nurse or other health professional you would prefer to respond
  • if you would prefer to consult with the doctor or nurse by phone, face-to-face, by video call or by text or email
  • if you need an interpreter
  • if you have any other access or communication needs

Training Practice

The practice is an accredited teaching and training practice, we have doctors who have completed part of their hospital training and are here to gain experience of working in general practice.

We also undertake the teaching of undergraduate medical students, and as part of their training they are encouraged to see patients under supervision you will always be informed in advance if there are students sitting in on your consultation and you will have the opportunity to decline if you so wish.

Care Navigation

Care navigation is a way by which you  can get your matter dealt with quickly by the most appropriate service. This signposting service can be used in many ways e.g. instead of calling the surgery to make an  appointment to see your GP for an antenatal referral our reception staff  will signpost you to the online self referral antenatal booking form.

This will ensure that the referral is done in a timely manner without having to wait for an appointment to see the GP.

When you phone for an appointment to see the GP , the receptionist will ask you details of why you want to see the GP, this is so that the receptionist/care navigator can then assist you in making an appointment with the most appropriate person/service.

You do not have to give any details to the reception staff if you would prefer not to however if you do, it will help the staff to signpost you to the most appropriate service to meet your needs.

The choice to accept any service that you are signposted to is yours, you will not be denied an appointment with the GP.
