Important Notice for our Patients

We are currently experiencing a high number of patients who are failing to attend for their appointment - particularly with our Nursing Staff.  Please can we remind all patients that if they cannot attend a pre-booked appointment for any reason that we appreciate a phone call to let us know.  This means we are able to re-allocate that appointment for another patient and therefore keeps our waiting times as short as possible for the benefit of all of our patients.  Thank you.

From September 2018, the Surgery would like to use SMS text messaging to help communicate with our patients regarding their appointments.  A consent form is available here - SMS Text Messaging Consent Form please complete and hand it to Reception.

Currently 46% of patients do not have a mobile number on their records... Do you have a mobile and would you like to be contacted by text?  Please inform Reception.  Thank you.

Home Visits

Doctor's bag

If you are too ill to come to the surgery, a home visit can be arranged by telephoning the surgery.  Requests for visits should ideally be made before 10:00 if possible. 

Please be prepared to supply the receptionist with the patient’s name, address, telephone number and brief details of the problem.

You can be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
