Wherever possible, patients are expected to attend surgery. This benefits both the doctor and the patient by enabling us to provide a more complete and efficient service.
In an emergency, or if in doubt, the practice nurse will advise on the necessity for a home visit. It is usually possible to get to the surgery with the help of a neighbour, friend or relative or even a taxi.
If it is absolutely impossible for you to attend surgery and you require a home visit please telephone (01753) 544288 as early as possible, ideally before 10am.
