If requesting a home visit, ring (01905) 26086 (option 1) before 10.30am. Home visits take up more of a doctor’s time than a consultation in surgery - so if you are mobile please come to the surgery to be seen.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the surgery.
