Home Visits

We are happy to visit all housebound people at their homes and to visit if you are too ill to get to the surgery. We mostly visit after morning surgery so please telephone before 10.30 am. We do ask you to come to the surgery if at all possible as this makes more efficient use of the doctor’s time and allows access to equipment and tests as necessary. Remember that we can see 4 patients in the same time it takes to do one visit.
The Doctors, who practice in partnership, provide you with 24-hour medical cover, shared between themselves and the Out of Hours Primary Care Service. Simply call the surgery number (0115 9292700) and your call will be diverted to an answering service. The call handler will take all your details and contact the on-call staff who will phone you back.  Doctors and Nurses are always available for advice or a visit if it is necessary.
In an extreme emergency e.g. a suspected heart attack or sudden severe collapse please telephone 999 for an ambulance.
