This service is specifically for patients who have suddenly become very unwell and cannot wait for a routine GP visit at home. It is for people that need to be seen urgently at home and then potentially admitted to hospital as an emergency.
Patients are seen by a highly trained specialist paramedic who has worked in hospitals, urgent care centres and doctors surgeries. They assess and manage ill patients at home, administer antibiotics and other medicines normally prescribed by a doctor as well as treat minor injuries.
The service runs during Monday to Friday excluding weekends and bank holidays.
We are running this service together with other surgeries in the local area.
