If possible please try to telephone reception before 11am 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 required when the condition of the patient would be damaged by travelling to the surgery. It is nearly always safe for a patient to travel by car or taxi to the surgery where we have the facilities for a proper examination.
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 Health Centre.
