If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:30am if you require a home visit.
A doctor may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability and remain at the doctors discretion.
Please remember that four or more 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 practice.
Requests for home visits after midday cause us particular problems as it involves a doctor having to leave a surgery full of patients waiting to do the visit. Please ring before midday or 10:30 ideally, but we do understand that you cannot plan being ill!
