Whenever possible please try to attend the surgery.
We usually only visit at home for our housebound and very elderly patients. Unfortunateley lack of transport is not a reason for the doctor to visit and so we would ask you to arrange a lift from a family member, friend or neighbour before considering a taxi.
Alternatively you could contact one of these groups in the area...
