Due to an increase in demand for home visits, we have developed a policy which outlines the criteria for requesting a home visit which are terminally ill patients, housebound patients and nursing home patients. As the Doctors are very busy we ask for your co-operation in attending Surgery whenever possible.
If you are too unwell or too immobile to attend, please telephone 01270 275949 before 10:00am Monday to Friday as this assists in the planning of Doctor visits in the early afternoon.
It is helpful if you can give the Receptionist an indication of the problem so that the Doctor can prioritise the urgency of the request. Always ensure there is a contact telephone number in case the Doctor wishes to speak with you prior to the visit.
