If possible, please request home visits before 11am so the doctors can plan their rounds. Please only ask for a visit if you are too ill to attend the surgery.
Emergencies can be fitted in to the routine daily surgeries.
A doctor or nurse 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.
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.
Please contact the surgery if you need advice, reception will take your details and will pass it on to the duty doctor who will then call you back.
