If possible, please try to telephone 01722 333034 before 10:00am if you require a home visit. A doctor or nurse will phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt appropriately by telephone advice or an appointment at the surgery.

It also may be that it would be more appropriate to send a district nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance. Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.

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 surgery.
