If you think a home visit is necessary, please contact the surgery as early as possible (before 10.00am) by phoning on 01922 666390 for Ambar Medical Centre and on 01922 476640 for Lower Farm Health Centre.
The receptionist will ask for some details to allow the doctor to assess the urgency of the call. Please do not ask for visits if you can come to the surgery. Home visits should be regarded as a service for the genuinely housebound or seriously ill.
Home visits take up a great deal of doctor time. A doctor can normally see approximately four patients in the time it takes to visit one.
Transport problems are not considered to be a valid reason to request a home visit. It is suggested that it may be appropriate to use services of Ring and Ride (01922 402232) or private taxi.
