CLOSED FOR TRAINING EVERY 2 MONTHS

TARGET is a scheme that brings our city’s GPs, Practice Nurses and Health Care Assistants together every two months to learn new skills, hear about new treatments and share good practice.  We think it will mean better services all round – that is what we’re aiming for!
It means that your surgery will need to close for one afternoon every two months but we will ensure that medical care will be available when you need it.  The surgery will therefore be closed on the following afternoons but the Out of Hours service (which can be accessed by calling 111) will cover: 
Wednesday 13 November
Thursday 16 January 2020
Thursday 26 March 2020

Home Visits - Housebound/Elderly Patients too ill to attend surgery.

Doctor's bagYour co-operation in attending the surgery if at all possible is greatly appreciated. A doctor can see three or four patients (sometimes more) in surgery, compared to driving to visit one patient on a home visit. Home visits are for those who are too ill or physically unable to attend.  All Home Visits are triaged by a clinician and where possible telephone contact will be made to the requestor/patient prior to a visit taking place.  

We receive a large number of requests for home visits each day. It is important that we know the reason for the request so that the doctor can prioritise his/her visiting schedule. We aim for a Clinician to visit on the day of the request for urgent conditions. 

It is helpful if requests for home visits are made before 10:30 and full details of the patients' name, age, address, telephone number and reason for visit are given.

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.
