Zero Tolerance Policy

A number of our staff have recently experienced foul and abusive language or behaviour from a minority of patients. This is not acceptable and we will not tolerate this sort of behaviour towards our staff – all of whom continue to work tirelessly during this pandemic. In line with our zero tolerance policy, if you are found to be abusive towards members of staff then appropriate action will be taken

Please be aware that it is not a GP’s responsibility to issue school letters of absence for your children, regarding COVID-19 or other illness. Government guidance is that school attendance is mandatory unless your child is self-isolating, has symptoms of COVID-19, is close to someone who has COVID-19 or has received a letter advising them to shield.

Home VisitsDoctor's bag

Home visits are made at the discretion of the doctor and are usually reserved for the severely ill, very elderly or house bound patients.

The Reception staff will ask you for details of the problem which will be passed to the Doctor.  The Doctor may decide to telephone you before the visit and may ask you to attend surgery if they feel this is more appropriate.  This will often result in you being seen sooner.

If you are not sure whether you need to be seen at home or at the surgery, your doctor will be able to advise you.  For instance babies and children with fever, diarrhoea, vomiting, earache or a rash should be brought to the surgery and seen quickly.  Adults with similar illnesses can also be seen quicker at the surgery.

Requests for home visits should preferably be made before 11.00 am as this allows the doctor to plan visits more efficiently.
