Home Visits

Home visits are available for regular patients in the local area (3km Radius) whose condition prevents them from attending the surgery. To make an appointment, please contact reception.

Availablility of doctors by telephone

Doctors in the practice may be contacted during normal surgery hours; however most queries are best dealt with during a consultation at the surgery. It is encouraged that you make an appointment to discuss your query because your doctor is able to deal with it more thoroughly in that setting.

If necessary and appropriate your doctor may discuss your query by telephone. If the doctor is with a patient a message will be taken and you will be advised by the reception staff when it is likely that the doctor will return your call. Your call will always be put through to the doctor in an emergency.
