If you are housebound or too ill to visit the surgery then you may telephone the surgery to request a home visit. Please telephone before 10.30am so that the doctors can plan the work of the day and allocate the visits accordingly.
After 10.30am only emergency visits can be performed and these will be undertaken by the duty doctor for that day. Please do try to come to the surgery if at all possible, where it is usually much easier for the doctor to examine and treat you.
Several patients can be seen in the surgery in the time it takes to perform one home visit. Please do not be surprised if you are telephoned after requesting a home visit in order to clarify the medical problem and decide on the best course of action.
