Home visits

Requests for home visits, if appropriate, should be made by telephone before 10am, on 01250 872552. 

There have been recent changes to the manner in which home visits are carried out within NHS Tayside. We now have the services of two very highly trained and experienced Community Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANP).

In many cases when a patient calls the surgery and requires a GP to visit them at home if they are housebound or too unwell to attend the surgery it will be the ANP who will visit to carry out a thorough examination of the patient. All information is fed back to the GPs in the surgery.  These nurses can prescribe medication or organise for hospital admission if needed.

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.

If you need help when we are closed

NHS 24

In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 24 (111) to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
