Home visits are reserved only for those patients who, in a doctor’s opinion, are unfit to travel to the surgery.
This is because we have access here, at the surgery, to specialist equipment and investigations and the surgery is where we are able to provide you with the best care.
If you do think you need a home visit, please call the surgery on 01271 323443 before 11:00. Details will be taken and you will be asked to leave your telephone number so that the doctor can contact you if necessary.
If you think an urgent visit is required, you will be asked to speak with a doctor who will assess the problem.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
