If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit. Be prepared to answer a few questions about the problem with one of our reception staff. This will help the doctors assess the priority of each patient when planning their visits.
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.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
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.
