This enables us to manage you and your problem in a more appropriate manner and ensure the phones are not clogged with calls that are only for routine follow up and blocking people with urgent problems ringing in to the surgery. Once submitted if the Doctor feels they need to speak to you then they can book a call slot to speak to you.

You will still speak to our Reception team first and as health care navigators they will ask you questions regarding your situation and book you in for what is most appropriate. Our Reception team will try to book appointments and calls with your own GP to ensure continuity wherever possible.
It helps the doctors if you can give the receptionists as much information as you feel comfortable with and ensure they have a correct contact number for you. In many cases it might be that the problem can be dealt with over the phone by the receptionist or in a pre booked telephone consultation with the Doctor. You are able to make advance face to face appointments with both our Nursing team and our GPs.
If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:00 if you require a home visit.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.
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.
