Home Visits

If you are too ill to travel to the surgery a doctor will visit you at home. Please contact the surgery between 8.30am and 11.30am on 01606 544300 choosing option 4 and give our staff as much information as possible to enable our doctor assess the urgency of your request. Please be aware that home visits are reserved for housebound and terminally ill patients.

Our consulting rooms have better facilities for examination and treatment than are available in your home and it is often to your advantage to attend the surgery.

When telephoning for a home visit or for the telephone advice, your call will be dealt with by a member of our administrative team who will either be able to provide advice or forward the enquiry to one of our clinicians. Please note they may need to contact you to clarify your request prior to arranging the visit.
