Noticeboard

On Tuesday 3rd April the Malthouse Surgery received 949 incoming telephone calls from patients, almost 100 an hour. The average answer time for the day was 3 minutes, however, we know some people who called at a time when lots of others called waited much longer than this and we apologise. Remember before you call the surgery to make an appointment there are alternatives for minor health problems, such as going to your local pharmacist.

Home Visits

Doctor's bag

These are made at the doctors’ discretion

If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you are housebound and require a home visit.

A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.

House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
