If you are unable to attend the surgery for consultation please telephone 01202 486456 (between 8.30 - 10.30am if possible, please). One of our receptionists will take details and pass them on to the doctor associated with your case. A decision will be made on whether your condition justifies a home visit (the doctor may decide to call you back to discuss the situation). If you phone later than 10.00am your request may need to be dealt with on the following working day.
Please remember that home visits are reserved for patients who are unable to come to the surgery for medical reasons. They will not be made merely because of the patient’s lack of transport.
Please consider carefully whether you really are in need of a home visit. Here at the surgery we are fully equipped to carry out examinations and begin treatment much more easily than in the patient’s home. Also, we have a pharmacy conveniently situated adjacent to the surgery.
