Should I see the Doctor or Nurse Practitioner?  Nurse Practitioners are highly trained specialist nurses who have completed further education and training so that they can provide advanced nursing care and prescribe medication.  They can provide treatment and advice for many of the problems that traditionally you saw your Dr about in the past.  If you are unsure if they can deal with your problem please ask at Reception.

Home Visits       

Should you believe you require a home visit, please telephone(01382) 221976homevisitsbefore 10:30am.

If you are too ill to come to the surgery, you may need a home visit. 

The receptionist will ask for full details of the problem so that we can make the most suitable arrangements for you.

Your request for a home visit may then be subsequently triaged by our Nurse Practitioner who will request additional detailed clinical information. 

As with all patient contacts and information held, anything you tell us over the telephone will be treated in the strictest confidence.

Please remember that a doctor can see six patients in the surgery in the time taken for one home visit.
