Noticeboard

We are following advice from NHS England that all patients must be triaged first before they can be seen. We are aware this has caused an increase in our phone traffic and at times patients have trouble accessing us. We are aware of this issue and have purchased a new telephone system with increased lines, this will be coming in the next 4-6 weeks, we ask patients to be patient with us during this very busy time.
Please think before you shout or abuse our staff, we are trying our best and do not tolerate abuse of any kind.

FLU - We are fast approaching flu season! We will be vaccinating patients on an appointment only basis, we have not yet received our flu vaccines. Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which are eligible for the flu vaccination, for example, you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

Home Visits

Doctor's bag

We wish to provide a first class service for our patients and in order to do this and to have time for clinics and services traditionally offered in hospitals, it is no longer viable or efficient (or in the majority or cases medically necessary) to do a home visit.

A surgery consultation is beneficial to the patient because of the ability to make use of equipment and diagnostic aids. 

We will continue to visit the following people:

  • The terminally ill.
  • Those truly bed-bound for whom travel to the surgery by car would cause a deterioration in their medical condition or unacceptable discomfort.
  • Those patients with severe life-threatening conditions for which we may simultaneously arrange an ambulance.
