REQUESTS FOR HOME VISITS

Please note that home visits are strictly for patients who are housebound due to a medical condition. If you attend hospital for outpatient appointments can we please urge you to make every effort to visit your doctor in the surgery instead of requesting a visit at home.

In these times when resources are stretched & the doctors’ workload is vast, it maybe difficult to facilitate a home visit during certain times.

Your help with this matter is greatly appreciated.

BRIDGE OF EARN SURGERY CLOSURE

As you will be aware Bridge of Earn Surgery closed on Friday 30 August 2019. The care of patients currently registered there has been transferred to neighboring practices with the majority of patients going to Perth City practices from Monday 2 September. The Victoria Practice has been allocated 350 patients from this list.

We fully appreciate and understand that the situation will be anxiety provoking and upsetting for many of the Bridge of Earn population and may also cause concern to our patients who are currently registered with us in terms of maintaining our current service.

We shall continue to give our Practice population both old and new patients the most appropriate and safe care possible
