Home visits

Our doctors typically see four patients in the surgery in the time it takes to do a single home visit. For this reason, we ask our patients to come to the practice if at all possible. However, we can visit you at home if your condition means you cannot attend. Remember friends, relatives and neighbours are often able to help you with transport. There are also excellent bus links to the surgery (including U Call buses, services 22, 50, 71, 684 and X82). We have arranged a discounted rate with a local taxi firm and there is a Freephone in the surgery to call a taxi.

Please ring (0191) 264 1014 before 10.30a.m. to request a visit and let us know if your condition is urgent. The receptionist will take your details and one of the doctors will call you back to discuss your request and arrange appropriate help.
