Should you require to see a doctor but are unable through sickness or injury to get to the surgery, arrangements can be made for a doctor to visit you at home. Generally home visits are for patients who are housebound but there my be times when, through illness, you are unable to come to the surgery. If that is so give as much information as you can over the phone and a Doctor will either visit or, if more appropriate, telephone you.
Children and babies can be seen and assessed more effectively at the surgery and can usually be safely brought to the surgery if unwell.
Home visits are vital to some of our patients but do take a lot of time so we would ask you to be mindful of the above advice before discussing a visit from a Doctor with our staff.
The surgery can be contacted on 01563 522413 from 8.30am.
Please call as early as possible when a house visit may be required.
Requests for home visits made after 11.00am will be assessed by the doctor on-call prior to a visit being made.
