Patients should make every effort to come to the surgery where we have a full range of facilities available. We are able to see 4 patients in the surgery in the time it takes for one home visit. If you feel that a home visit is necessary, it is important that you telephone the surgery before 10.30am.
You will be asked to give a few brief details of the illness so that the doctor can assess the urgency of the call. The doctor may ring you to clarify whether a visit is necessary. We will take calls for all emergencies at any time.
Please note that transport difficulties cannot be regarded as a reason for a home visit.
