Telephone Consultations

If you require a telephone consultation with a Nurse / Advanced Nurse Practitioner / GP, please ask reception and we will arrange this for you. Please note, the Receptionist may ask a reason for the telephone call to ensure it is appropriate and you do not require to be seen face to face.

Phone calls which are booked and can be at any time throughout the surgery’s opening hours (8am and 6.30pm) so we are unable to give a time as to when the clinician will phone you.

Note – Telephone calls from the surgery will come up as a withheld number, unless specified this is not suitable.

Home visits

Our doctors typically see four patients at the practice in the time it takes to do a single home visit. For this reason, we ask our patients to arrange to come in to the practice if at all possible. Home visits are for bedbound patients and not for patients who have difficulty with transport.

Please ring the appointments line on 01332 755990 before 10:30 am to arrange a visit, if appropriate.

We will not routinely visit children at home as it is often quicker for them to be brought to us and then onwards to hospital, if necessary.

Please be prepared to tell the Receptionist about your condition so we can visit the most urgent cases first. The doctor may wish to speak with you to see if it would be better for you to come to the surgery to be seen immediately.

Please note that we cannot guarantee which Doctor will come to see you. Home visits are normally made after morning surgery.

However you choose to contact us, we may offer you a consultation:

  • by phone
  • face to face at the surgery
  • by text or email

Appointments by phone or by text or email can be more flexible and often means you get help sooner.
