Home Visits and Emergencieslogo

Home Visits

Patients are requested to telephone the surgery before 10:30am if a home visit is required that day. Please do not ask the doctor to call unless the patient is genuinely too ill to come to the surgery as several patients can be seen at the surgery in the same time that it takes to do one home visit.


During Surgery hours an emergency is a medical problem that needs attention within 30 minutes.  After hours it is a medical problem that cannot wait until the surgery opens.

Evening / Night / Weekend / Bank Holiday calls

After 6:30pm on weekdays, throughout the weekend and on bank holidays; or if you have an urgent medical problem that cannot wait until we re-open, then call 111. This service will offer telephone advice, a consultation based at the hospital, or if necessary they will arrange for a doctor to visit.
