Telephone Consultations  

Occasionally you may have a query that does not require a face to face consultation. Simple queries can be undertaken via the telephone, reception is able to give advice regarding the suitability for a telephone consultation.

It is expected that you, the patient, will be available to talk when the clinician calls. If the call is not answered on 2 occasions, this will be classed as a missed appointment and another appointment will be necessary. Please be aware we are unable to give you a set time for telephone consultations.

Please bear in mind that patient confidentiality still applies for telephone consultations. The telephone consultation would be for the patient or their legal guardian only. The clinician cannot legally talk to a patient’s relatives about their health without written consent of the patient.



The practice is now in a position to offer appointments in person for skin complaints or ailments, including skin lesions and rashes. Any photographs, usually to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of any skin conditions, may be requested by a clinician during your consultation. These photographs are often sent for Teledermatology, whereby an opinion is sought from a skin specialist, via a secure NHS link.  

Photographs showing intimate areas may not be uploaded.

If you are unable to attend the surgery for any reason, a telephone appointment can be requested. You will be asked to send photographs of your skin complaint to the practice email for review, prior to a consultation with a clinician. 


Home Visits

Home visits are made only to those who are unable to come to surgery, because of infirmity (bed bound or housebound, significant frailty) or whose medical condition is extremely serious. All requests for visits should be made before 10.30am.
Lack of transport or of childcare facilities are not seen as reasons not to attend surgery.
