HOUSE VISITS

In December we undertook 245 house visits. This is four times as many as other local practices of a similar size. House visits take a substantial amount of doctor time.

Community Pharmacy/GP if it persists

Advice:

Please search for your nearest community pharmacist. 

If you have a sore throat, there are a number of ways you can help yourself. Paracetamol can help with the pain, andgargling with warm, salty water may help shorten theinfection (but this isn’t recommended for children). In most cases, you only need to see your GP if your sore throat doesn’t improve after a week.

You can either book an appointment with your GP, or alternatively please phone the reception desk on 01294 554591 to arrange your appointment.
