If you are too ill to come to the surgery, please ring before 11.30am and the receptionist will take details. Non-emergency visits are usually done when the on call doctor has finished the morning surgery. If it is a medical emergency, please make that clear when you speak to the receptionist and leave a telephone number, as the duty doctor may well ring you back for further information and directions.
Please be aware that home visits are strictly for patients who are seriously ill and whose medical condition prevents them from attending the surgery. Having no transport is not a valid reason for requesting a visit.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
