At Birtle View we provide a wide range of appointment times including times outside normal office hours. Appointments can be booked up to six weeks in advance with a Doctor or Nurse.
You can also have a telephone consultation with a Doctor or a home visit. We ask that home visit requests be made before 10:30am by calling the surgery. All visit requests will be triaged, and if appropriate, a doctor will arrange to come and see you.
