Home Visits

Doctor's bag

For a home visit by the doctor please telephone Measham 01530 270667 before 10:30 if possible so that the doctor will be able to see you on normal rounds. After 10:30 any visits received that day will be passed to the duty doctor who may have many more urgent calls to make.

If you wish to see the nurse or midwife please also ring this number for a home visit.

For a home visit from the podiatrist please telephone 0116 2255118 open from 09:00 to 16:00. The staff are very happy to give home care when appropriate. Most ill patients and their carers prefer care in their home rather than in hospital, so we do our best to make this possible. We are pleased to arrange home births in suitable cases.

The team is dedicated to providing the best care at home. However facilities at home can never be as good as those at the surgery and travelling takes up time, which we would rather spend with patients.

For these reasons, the staff only make home visits when you are too ill to come to surgery. In most cases, sick children can safely be brought to the surgery and will be kept away from other patients if you are afraid of spreading infection. We make a special effort to see sick children quickly.
