Home Visits

If you require a home visit, please try to telephone reception before 10:30 on 01332 292939.

A doctor or nurse may call you back, as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.

Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability. Home visits are at the discretion of the doctor and are not available for minor illnesses. Lack of transport does not warrant a home visit.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
