We encourage our patients to come to the surgery if at all possible, where we have more equipment and resources to deliver the best care including the assessment itself but also treatment.
This is not always possible and we will visit patients at home when it is needed. If you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:00 if possible as our home visits are done in the middle of the day except in an emergency.
As a matter of routine, a doctor may take your call or contact you back to assess the urgency of a visit request and determine who is the best person to visit you. Please leave details with reception about who to contact for this purpose when you make your request.
Much of the care of patients who are housebound is delivered by the District Nurse service and their contact details are listed on the practice staff page
