The normal place to see the doctor is at the surgery where we have all the equipment and facilities.
We can normally see at least three patients in surgery in the time needed for one house call. We will of course visit patients at home where this is medically necessary, but in everyone’s interests this service is reserved only for those who are too ill or infirm to be brought to the surgery.
If you think you may need a home visit please call the surgery on 01908 393979 as early as possible in the morning, but certainly before 12pm. The doctor will then ring you back to discuss your problem before arranging to visit.
