If you are housebound or too ill to attend the surgery, please telephone 01244 563105 before 10.30am (if possible) to request a home visit. The Patient Services Member will ask the nature of the problem so that the doctors can visit the most urgent cases first. Not all requests will result in a home visit by the doctor. The doctor may phone the patient to discuss the problem and an alternative to a home visit may be agreed. It may sometimes be to the patients benefit if they can attend the surgery as they will then be seen more rapidly.
