Please do not ask for a home visit unless you are truly housebound. The Practice has wasted a number of hours this month visiting patients to find that they are not at home.
All appointment are now available online, this includes on the day appointments which are released at 8am the same time as the surgery opens. Booking an appointment online means that you do not have to wait in a queue, which we can understand can be frustrating. Pre bookable appointments can be made 4 weeks in advance.
If a GP or Nurse has requested you to have a blood test this can also be booked online.
