Home visits are available for anyone who is too ill to come to the surgery and should be the exception rather than the rule. If at all possible please try to attend the surgery. Whenever possible please request a visit before 10.00am. This enables the doctors to plan their day.
Visits are distributed amongst the doctors on duty and the doctor may phone you prior to visiting to see if a visit is justified.
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.
