If you require a home visit, please contact the surgery and give the receptionist details of your illness so that the doctor can assess the urgency of your call. Except in an emergency, please phone before 10.00am.
As a matter of routine you will be asked if you are able to come to surgery.
This is because facilities for examination and treatment are better at the surgeries, and the less time a doctor spends in travelling the more time is available for patients. Nevertheless, we appreciate that some patients will need to be seen at home when they are too ill to come to the surgery.
