If you are unwell and unable to come to the surgery please try to ring as soon as possible after 08:30. Nearly always children can be wrapped up and brought to surgery, where there are better facilities for diagnosis and treatment.
On average it takes four times as long for a doctor to treat you at home than in the surgery, so please use this service ONLY when it is essential, not just for reasons of transport or convenience. The Practice has the services of a Paramedic Practitioner available to undertake some home visits at the request of the GP. The Paramedic Practitioners communicate fully with the GPs.
If you are uncertain whether you need a visit, the doctor will be happy to advise you on the telephone.
