If you are housebound or elderly and too ill to come to the surgery, a doctor will visit you at home. Telephone 01606 544555 before 10.00am, if possible and give the Patient Services Co-ordinator brief details of the illness so that the doctors can plan their visits according to the degree of urgency.
The consulting rooms have better facilities for examination and treatment than are available in your home and it would normally be to your advantage to attend the surgery.
Mothers often worry about bringing babies and children to the surgery when they are unwell. It is usually quite safe to do so and frequently it will mean that your child will receive treatment quicker. If you are concerned that your child has an infectious disease, the Patient Services Co-ordinator can arrange for you to be seen without waiting with other patients.
