We are able to provide a much better quality of care at the surgery than in your own home. Doctors can see approximately five patients in the surgery in the time it takes to visit one patient at home. It is for these reasons that we would ask all patients to attend the surgery whenever possible.
East Staffs run a mobility Link Service offering door to door transport at reasonable rates. Tel: 01283 544320
If a home visit is needed, the request should be made before 12:00 noon by telephoning the surgery on 01889 562145.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
