Urgent Care Practitioner - telephone (01652) 650131
We have an Urgent Care Practitioner who deals with requests for home visits and emergencies, as well as offering advice on a variety of conditions. This service operates Monday to Friday 08:00 to 18:30.
Speaking to the Doctors
If you wish to speak to your doctor on the telephone it will normally be possible to do this by arrangement with the receptionist. It would be helpful in judging the urgency of the call and also ensuring the doctor has your notes and relevant information available if you could tell the receptionist the nature of your call when you ring. At other times we may be busy and we find that interruptions during surgery are upsetting both to ourselves and to patients we are seeing. For this reason we have asked receptionists not to disturb consultations with non-urgent telephone calls.
Home Visits - (01652) 650131
