If you need a home visit, please telephone between 8.30 and 10.00am where possible, as this helps the doctors to plan their rounds. Brief details of the problem should be given to the receptionist to help the doctor assess the urgency of your request. Please do not ask the doctor to call unless the patient is genuinely too ill to come to the surgery. Most children can quite safely be brought to the surgery by car, taxi or pushchair.
The home visits are time-consuming for the doctor - it takes, on average, about three times as long to see a patient at home as in the surgery. If it is simply not possible for you to attend the surgery but you need to see a doctor we will endeavour to arrange this. Please accept that this, unless urgent, may not be on the day of your choice nor with the doctor of your choice.
For home visits please phone: (01929) 422231 and choose option 3.
