If you are housebound and need a home visit, please telephone the surgery before 10AM where possible. Please give the receptionist a contact number as you may be contacted by one of the medical staff for further information. Every effort should be made to attend the surgery where possible.
Please note, Home Visits are only provided for the genuinely housebound – under no circumstances do we provide home visits purely for reasons of social convenience.

It is important to understand that GP’s are not employed by the NHS, they are self employed, and they have to cover their own costs – staff, heating etc in the same way as any other small business, as such “non nhs” services may be charged for at an appropriate rate depending on the amount of work and time the specific request takes. If you have any questions – please ask one of the practice staff.
Some insurance forms can appear deceptively simple but need a full examination for their completion. This can take a long time, as such a fee has to be charged.
A special appointment will be required and the fee payable at the time of booking. Please advise the reception staff at the time of booking. Please ensure you bring the relevant paperwork with you for your appointment. Pre employment, HGV and PSV licenses are not paid for by the NHS.
When a doctor signs a certificate or completes a report, it is a condition of remaining on the Medical Register that they only sign what they know to be true. In order to complete even the simplest of forms the doctor may need to check your entire medical record. Carelessness or inaccuracies may have very serious implications for the doctor.
