Assistance at home:
The doctors do home visits for housebound patients and under certain other circumstances. Please try and telephone before 10.00am if you think you need a doctor to visit you at home.
Whilst we appreciate that it may be difficult to get to the surgery for various reasons (eg transport), we feel that we can offer a quicker and more comprehensive service if you are able to attend the surgery.
Our district nursing service is available to help patients who need nursing assistance at home.
The service can be accessed through the hospital or your doctor.
Our Health Visitors are able to advise on the healthcare needs of many patients, including new mothers, young children and the elderly. They are involved in screening and immunisations and can advise on smoking cessation. They are based at Wilmslow Clinic and the telephone number is 0300 123 4263
Dr Speake runs a minor surgery clinic in the practice for the treatment of minor surgical conditions. You may be referred by your GP. It helps avoid a long wait for hospital treatment for low priority conditions.
