If possible please try to telephone reception before 11:00 if you require a home visit.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
Home visits are usually only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Children can be seen very quickly if they are brought to the surgery and this is usually faster than waiting for a visit. It is usually quiet safe, but if in doubt phone the doctor for advice.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the surgery.
