Budgets
Patients are quite rightly getting more and more frustrated at not getting what they want, when they want it! Please be assured that we are your advocates and we act in your best interests. But we do have to prescribe cost-effectively, and refer for medical reasons when we can't manage your problem, not simply for your peace of mind. You will not find a GP practice these days which will oblige your every wish without discussion!

Photo ID you may be asked for a photo for our records. This reduces problems where patients are mistaken for each other when they consult another GP within the practice. 

Sickness Certficates The first 7 days of sickness do not require a certificate from your GP. If your employer insists on a sickness form, complete a Self Certification form, which can be found here

 

Home Visits

homevisits.jpgIf you genuinely cannot get to the surgery for medical reasons then please phone as early as possible to request the visit.  Please try to phone before 10.30am so that the doctors can plan and prioritise their visits.  The doctor will phone you back to assess your needs and to decide on what action needs to be taken. The Doctor may feel it appropriate to send a visiting team. 

Please attend surgery if at all possible.  Patients can be examined more thoroughly at the surgery and the doctor can see 3 or 4 patients in the average time it takes to make a visit. 

Children can be brought up by car, cab or friends, to be examined quickly. Let reception know, and they will make sure we see the child soon if they are miserable/ vomiting/ in pain.

Even though they feel miserable and weak, it is safe after giving Calpol, to bring children with temperatures or a rash to the surgery. 

Older patients who are able to be taken shopping or to the hairdresser are usually expected to be brought to surgery by car.
