Requests should be made by 10.00am if you are able to. If possible, please try to attend the surgery where more clinical facilities are available for the staff.
It is preferable if patients can possibly get to surgery that they do so. Although it may be difficult for you to attend rather than be visited at home please remember that a lot of the time it is much easier for the doctor to examine you properly at the surgery. Also if doctor feels that it is necessary to refer directly to hospital it is easier to contact from the surgery as we often have to wait for them to get back to us. If necessary, we can meet you from the car with a wheelchair and we also allow patients to park, with permission granted, behind doctor’s car at the front of the building – this is why we like to keep it free!
