Please help us to plan our day by telephoning your requests for home visits before 10:00.
The doctors and our nurse practitioner are happy to do home visits when necessary, but they are time consuming as we cover a large area of Suffolk. Often visits are requested from patients who are feeling very unwell, or with a poorly child, and do not feel able to sit and wait in the surgery.
We do understand this and we are happy to arrange a time when you or your child can be seen at the surgery within a few minutes, thus eliminating the need for a home visit. Our receptionists will arrange this if you wish.
If you telephone the surgery after 18:30 you will be automatically transferred to the out-of-hours deputising service. Use the night and weekend on-call services for genuine emergencies that cannot wait until the next working day.
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.
