SMS Text Messaging


The Practice is introducing the use of text messaging as another form of communication.


SMS Text messaging is now a well-used method of communication, and the practice feels that embracing this method will enhance the service we offer to our patients by engaging with them in a more efficient and accessible way. Our aim is to benefit both the practice and patients in delivering our services more effectively.


This will allow the practice to send out information such as appointment reminders, recalls in relation to health reviews, flu campaigns, pathology results and more.


If you would like to be included in the process then please either click the link below to read our conditions and download our consent form or call into the Surgery and speak to one of our Reception Team.

Home Visits

diary

Home visits are made by the Doctors at their discretion and are normally restricted to housebound and palliative care patients, and patients that are housebound because of illness or disability. Please make your request before 10.00 am.

A doctor or nurse may phone you back.  It may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice.

Home visits must be medically justifiable and not requested for social convenience.  You should make every effort to consult at the Medical Centre to make best use of the nurses' and doctors' time.  It may well be uncomfortable and inconvenient for you to attend surgery when feeling unwell, but the place for adequate examination and treatment facilities is at the surgery.

The services of a Chaperone are also available at the surgery.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the Practice in the time it takes to make one home visit.
