Please phone in requests for home visits before 10.00am.
Home visits are predominantly for the elderly housebound, or people who are seriously ill and unable to attend the surgery.
Please be prepared to give some details of the problem to the receptionist answering your enquiry as it will help the doctors to plan their visits for the day.
Please remember that a doctor can see up to SIX patients in the surgery in the time that it takes to make ONE house call.
Patients can also be examined much more thoroughly in the surgery environment, so please keep requests for home visits for urgent matters only.
