Home Visits

Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception between 08:00 – 10:00.

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. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls.

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. The community nurse can also only visit those patients who are housebound/to ill to visit the surgery.


Text Reminder Service

We have a texting service which allows you to receive confirmation and reminders about your appointments.

To have this service you will need to register by completing a consent form.

Please remember to update your contact details with us when you change address, telephone numbers and email address.

Training Practice

GP Registrars

In September 2004 we obtained accreditation for GP Registrar training. A GP Registrar is a fully qualified doctor, with relevant hospital experience, who has chosen to specialise in general practice. During their period with us (normally 12 months) the GP Trainers & other GP Partners within the practice will closely supervise the registrars’ work. Normal appointments and follow-up appointments can be made with the registrar.
