Please telephone before 10.00am if you require a home visit that day. Emergency visits only will be arranged after that time. Please give the receptionist as much information as possible to enable the doctor to allocate priority to requests. You may be telephoned by a doctor or nurse as it may be that your problem could be dealt with by telephone, or a nurse could be sent, or hospital admission arranged.
Several patients can be seen at the surgery in the time that it takes to do a home visit therefore home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
