If you need a home visit please phone BEFORE 10.30am if possible. This will help the doctors to plan their rounds and avoid unnecessary delays. Visits are for those who are housebound or too ill to go out. Otherwise please try to come to one of the surgeries.
Please bear in mind that the doctor is able to see probably six patients in the surgery, in the time it takes to make one home visit. Home visits are for patients who are too ill to come to the surgery by assisted transport.
Please be prepared to answer a few questions about your medical problem if the receptionist asks you to do so. This will help the doctor to arrange visits so that the most urgent cases are dealt with first.
Emergencies take priority at all times.
