Your doctor may visit you at home if it is felt that you are too ill to come in to the surgery. If you require a home visit please telephone (01634) 291299 before 10.00am. If the phone is not answered immediately, please do not hang up - you are held in a queue and your call will be answered as soon as a line is free.
Your doctor will usually first phone back to discuss the problem or assess if a visit is needed. All requests for home visits will be based on medical criteria and at the Clinicians discretion. Most cases may best be seen in the medical centre where we have equipment for tests and special treatment. Reasons other than ill health (ie no transport) are not generally considered when deciding whether a visit is needed.
For emergencies during the working day there is always a doctor on call.
