Where possible we encourage patients to come to the surgery when they are ill as we have full facilities for investigation and treatment and can therefore provide better care than in the home.
However, if you are too ill to attend the surgery and require a home visit, please telephone the surgery (01371 810328) before 11 a.m.
The receptionist or nurse will ask for some information on your condition so that the doctor can assess the urgency of the visit.
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 Health Centre.
