If you require a home visit please phone before 10.00 am. The receptionist will request the patient’s date of birth, full name, address and telephone number and brief details about the nature of the complaint to help us be certain that urgent calls are seen promptly. In an emergency telephone with the usual details and explain the urgency of the situation to the receptionist.
Please note that home visits are very time consuming and that the doctor could see several patients at the surgery in the same time as one home visit. A surgery appointment has the advantage that examination and tests are more easily carried out in the surgery setting. Naturally we will be happy to visit patients who are too ill or frail to come to the surgery but we do ask that patients ensure that their requests for home visits are appropriate.
