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 do feel that you need a home visit please call 01483 766699 ideally before 10:00.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your paramedic practitioner or GP will visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.
Unfortunately we are still only able to offer home visits if clinically necessary to patients who live within our practice boundary.
If you have a sick or infectious child or adult that can be brought to the surgery, the receptionist can arrange for you to be seen as quickly as possible in a side room.
Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse or phlebotomist if you are referred by your GP.
You should also be visited at home by your community midwife and 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.
When a home visit may be required or an appointment is needed with them, a community matron or GP may be able to arrange an assessment.
