If you are housebound and are too ill to come to the surgery, then a home visit by a doctor can be requested.
Telephone 01706 346767 before 11.00am if possible and give the receptionist brief details of the illness. These requests are then triaged, so a clinician will call you back for further information.
The consulting rooms have better facilities for examination and treatment than is available in your home and it would normally be to your advantage to attend the surgery.
Mothers often worry about bringing babies and children 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 receptionist can arrange for you to be seen without waiting with other patients.
Your doctor will advise you over the telephone if you are in any doubt.
