Home Visits

If you are housebound or too ill to come to the surgery, a doctor will visit you at home. Please call the practice on 01883 734000 before 10:30 where possible; this will normally ensure a visit from your own doctor.

If you can get to the Health Centre, this helps the doctor as home visits are very time consuming. The Health Centre has better facilities for examination and treatment.

Children with fevers or rashes can be placed in a separate room and seen quickly.

Difficulties with transport can often be met by LINK.
