Out of Hours Emergency Contacts

Home Visits

Home visits are at the discretion of the doctor. If the patient is too ill to visit the surgery please try to telephone the surgery before 10.30am. Full details of the patient’s name, address and date of birth will be requested together with the reason for the visit and a contact telephone number. This information enables urgent visits to be dealt with promptly.

The Medical Centre is open weekdays from 8am - 6pm (term time only hours)
Tel: 01772 214800
