How to Request a Home Visit
If you are too ill to come to the surgery, please ring preferably 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. Please be aware that the doctor can see six patients at the surgery in the time it takes to do one home visit.
