Please come to the Shaftesbury Medical Centre whenever possible as the facilities here are far better for examination. If you are housebound or are too ill to come to the surgery, please try to telephone the surgery before 11:00am to help the doctors plan their day.
We will need patient contact details i.e. name,dob,reason for visit.
Children are best seen at the GP surgery
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
