Please phone 01563 522118 or call at reception. If at all possible please phone between 8.30am and 10.00am, if you wish a house visit that day.
All requests for home visits are passed to the visiting GP for that day to assesses the level of urgency and plans who is the most appropriate member of the team to make the call.
Home visits are a very important, but very time-consuming, part of the doctors' day - 3 or 4 patients can be seen in the surgery in the time it takes to do one house call. We therefore ask you to request a house call only if you are genuinely unable, because of sickness or injury, to come to the surgery. The doctors are never unwilling to visit patients who are genuinely housebound.
Children and babies can usually be safely brought to one of the emergency surgeries, or can, if necessary, be seen even more quickly after discussing the problem by phone. It is a great help if patients give some details about the nature of the problem when a house visit is being requested, so that we can assess the urgency of the visit.
