If possible please try to telephone reception before 10 am if you require a home visit.
A doctor will 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 see another health care professional or arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability. Lack of transport is not a reason for a home visit.
We prefer sick children to be seen in the surgery, often this can be quicker than a home visit. If in doubt about bringing your child out, please phone the surgery first for advice.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes the doctor to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
