If you feel you need a home visit, please phone the reception team on 01424 772263, if possible before 10:30. We cannot guarantee that it will be your usual GP who visits, as we share the workload of home visits. If you are physically fit to come to the surgery, you should do so, even if it means getting a taxi or a friend or relative to bring you. Very few children ever need a home visit. Even children who have a fever or are vomiting can be brought quite safely to the surgery.
If you think you need an urgent visit during surgery hours, ring the reception team on 01424 772263 and make sure they know you think it is urgent. A doctor may speak to you first, and might decide you should come to the surgery to be seen.
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.
