If you are housebound or too ill to come to the surgery a doctor will visit you at home. It is helpful if requests are made before 10.00am - including weekends and bank holidays. You will be asked to give a few details about what is wrong. If you feel the visit is urgent please tell the receptionist and she will immediately speak to a doctor. If you can get to the surgery this helps us as the doctor can see three patients in surgery in the time it takes to make one home visit, and we have better facilities in the surgery for examination and treatment.
