HOME VISITS

Home visits are intended for the very disabled housebound ill patients. The condition will be assessed over the telephone by the doctor before the visit is arranged. The doctor may give advice over the telephone if they think a visit is not necessary. Patient requesting a home visit should call as early in the day as is possible preferably before 10am in the morning following where you will be called back by a GP, who will then arrange a home visit appointment if there is a clinical need.

Results

All abnormal investigations and hospital letters requesting further action will be notified by the Practice by telephone or a letter.

Sick Notes (MED3)

If you are unwell and not able to go to work you must inform your employer.

A self-certification form will need to be filled and given to your employer. This will cover the first week of absence from work, it includes bank holidays and weekends. The self-certification form can be obtained from your employer, DSS website and from practice. You need a Doctor’s note from 8th day if you are unwell to go to work.

Named Accountable GP

From April 2014, all patients including children have a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.

What does this mean for our patients

As one of our patients you will be given a named GP. This does not mean you can only see this GP.

Your named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. They will also work with other relevant health and care professionals, who are involved in your care, to ensure that your care package meets your individual needs.
