If you require a home visit, please telephone the Surgery before 10.00 am and give the receptionist some indication of the problem so that the visiting doctor will know how urgent the visit is.
House calls that are telephoned in later in the day may be held back until the following date dependent on their urgency.
Please bear in mind that this service is for patients who are too ill to come down to the Surgery or housebound.
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 Surgery.
If your call for a home visit is of an urgent nature you may be advised to call for an ambulance or the surgery may phone one for you.
