Please try to come to the surgery if possible (the doctor can see three to four patients at the surgery in the time it takes him/her to visit one patient at home). Home visits are mainly for those patients who are too ill to come to the surgery and for elderly patients who are housebound. The doctor will discuss this with you.

If you require medical attention and are unable to travel to the surgery then please try to phone before 12pm and give the receptionist some indication of your problem – this will enable the doctors to plan and give priority to the more urgent cases.

Please note: home visits can only be arranged if you are housebound and live within the CR7 postcode.
