Missed appointments and lateness

Patients are advised to cancel their GP appointment with 1 hour in advance notice and Nurse/Pharmacist/HCA 24 hours in advance of their appointment. Your appointment will be classed as DNA appointment if you do not cancel within these timeframes.

If you arrive 10 minutes after your appointment time without contacting the practice beforehand, please be advised that you may not be seen. Please be aware that this is the GP decision whether they accept to see you if you are late for your appointment.

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 before 10:30.

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. 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.
