Prescription requests do not require an appointment, but requests must be made online (via Patient Access or the NHS App) or through your pharmacy for clinical safety. Alternatively, written requests can be submitted using eConsult. If you are unable to use any of these methods, you may submit a written request.
BP checks - For routine hypertension reviews, please complete the template on eConsult. You will need to submit a blood pressure reading using a home monitor or our surgery 'Pod' by reception. Our pharamacist will then contact you for review.
Ongoing problems should be dealt with by the same doctor where possible. You can request a specific doctor when using eConsult.
Home visits are provided for those who are housebound if the doctor thinks it is medically necessary - if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:00. We do not provide home visits for ‘out of area’ registrations.
Community nurse/health visitor - You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
Interpreter - If you require an interpreter for your appointment, please notify the receptionist. We are able to access a language line service for this.
Care Navigator - You may be referred to a Care Navigator who will be able to assess your home circumstances and signpost you to any appropriate services.
