Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. If you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice, you may request a home visit. To do so you must call reception on 01273 557411 (option 1) before 10:30.
Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls. A doctor will always ring you or a carer to assess the situation and check that you are suitable for a home visit and the the visit will be carried out between the morning and afternoon clinics - we cannot provide a specific time.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
