If you are too unwell to attend the surgery or are housebound, please try to phone us as early in the day as you can. Please telephone before 10.00am if you think you need a home visit. The doctor will call you back to assess the urgency of the request and priority is given to housebound and elderly patients. Visits are usually carried out during the afternoon. We usually prefer to see patients here in the surgery so that they can benefit from our in-house equipment.
