We Can Text You!

We are using our text messaging service more and more, to invite you for a review, blood test or let you know if a GP would like to see you. You can also you use it to cancel appointments, decline or accept services and let us know if we are doing a good job! Please make sure we have your up to date contact details. You can do this via this website or EMIS access if you are registered. Alternatively, call us and let us know.

Cancel Your Appointment!

Every week a large number of patients fail to attend booked appointments. Please let us know as soon as possible if you can’t keep your appointment then we can give it to someone else! We offer a text messaging service which has the option to cancel an appointment so please make sure we have your up to date contact details.

Out of Hours 

When the surgery is closed if you have an urgent problem that cannot wait until we are open again, please call 111. For anything life threatening call 999.

 

Home Visits

To enable us to manage our home visits more effectively we will be joining the Home Visiting Service from April 2018.

If your condition prevents you attending the surgery and you require a home visit, please telephone the surgery as early as possible in the morning. Brief details given to the Receptionist help us to understand the urgency of your request. This information will then be forwarded to the Home Visiting Service Team who will then contact for further information and organise the appropriate person for the visit.

The facilities in the surgery are better for medical examination and treatment than in the home. Please do not therefore request a home visit unless the patient is too ill to leave the house.

Routine home visits are not compatible with the other demands of modern general practice.
