Home Visits & Emergencies

We can visit those too unwell to leave the house. Please phone as early as you can (before mid-day). A doctor will speak to you first in order to prioritise visits.

Examining someone in their own home is often less than ideal, so if you are able to come to our well-equipped surgery it is safer and better.

If you feel bad when you get to the surgery, please tell a receptionist and we will see you without delay.
In an emergency (severe shortness of breath, crushing chest pain, heavy bleeding, sudden paralysis, you should always dial 999 as the patient’s life may be at risk.

It is perfectly safe to bring a feverish child to see us, despite many old-fashioned beliefs.They have often cooled down and perked up by the time they arrive and will be seen quicker than waiting at home.
