It is very important to let us have your request for a home visit before 10.00am so that your own doctor who knows your case best can come out to you. All requests for home visits require a doctor's decision.
Our receptionists are specially trained to take the details of your call sympathetically and in total confidence, so please give her the details of your problem. This helps us judge the urgency of the call and ensures that those who need visiting most urgently are first on the doctor's list.
Home visits are intended particularly for the very young or old, very ill or housebound. Please remember that your doctor can see four patients in the surgery in the time taken to do one home visit.
Please note: If the patient has a temperature or a rash, coming into the surgery will do no harm and will not endanger others. Please inform the receptionist on your arrival.
