Breast, Bowel and Cervical cancer screening is still going ahead. Please do attend your screening appointment, screening saves many lives every year. Remember screening is for healthy people with no symptoms to catch problems early.
If you would like a home visit please call reception before 10.00am on the day. Medically urgent visits only will be arranged after that time. Please give the receptionist as much information as possible to enable the doctor to allocate priority to house calls.
Please remember that several patients can be seen at the surgery in the time it takes to do a home visit, and that we have better facilities at the surgery to assess your problem. Home visits are for people who are truly housebound or whose medical condition means they are too ill to travel.
If the patient has a temperature or a rash, coming to the surgery will do no harm and will not endanger others.
Visits are at the discretion of the doctor and receptionists will refer to the doctor who will decide if a visit is necessary.
