A small number of our patients are housebound (unable to leave their home) or those deemed too ill to attend surgery. For genuinely housebound patients we offer a Home Visit service. If you require a home visit we would ask that you contact the surgery before 10.30 am so that your visit request can be allocated to an available GP. Please telephone telephone 01254 226691/ 2/ 3 then choose option 2
The GP or another member of the practice team may wish to contact you by phone before visiting to clarify the need for a visit.
After 10.30 am visits will only be available for medical emergencies which cannot wait until the following day.
