Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery when necessary, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible.
In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by telephoning the surgery on 01594 510225 before 10:00.
Home visits are exceptional as only the surgery is properly equipped with the necessary tools for our GPs to make a proper diagnosis of your condition.
So we reserve home visits solely for those who are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice.
A GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.
Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls.
You can also be visited at home by a district nurse if you are referred by your GP.
