If you just wish to speak to a doctor and don’t feel you need to be examined or need to have a face-to-face appointment, you could arrange a telephone appointment where the GP will phone you back at a specified time. There are telephone appointments for available for each GP.
The practice operates a triage system for anyone requesting an urgent appointment. The receptionist will ask for your contact details and the Advanced Nurse Practitioner will call you back for an over the phone assessment.
Depending on clinical need he will either:
- Give appropriate self care advice;
- Arrange for you to be seen by him at his clinic later in the day;
- Refer you to a GP; or
- Arrange a house call for you.
You can access this service from 8:00am. It is recommended that you try to phone in as early as possible in the day.
Please note that you will still be able to make routine appointments as usual.
Requesting a Home Visit
If you need a home visit, please telephone the surgery before 10:00am if possible. This will help the Doctor plan his rounds and avoid delays in doing visits. Please note that home visits are for those who are housebound or too ill to attend surgery.
Please inform the surgery as soon as possible if you are unable to keep your appointment. Non-attendance without cancellation of three or more appointments could result in a written warning or removal from the Practice list.
If your child is sick please telephone the practice as early as possible so they can be added to the triage list.
