Generally patients will be expected to come to the surgery to be seen unless genuinely house bound or their condition dictates they need a home visit. Patients requiring a home visit will be seen by the Duty Doctor of the day, who may ring to discuss the reasons and timing for a visit.
It will not be possible to give specific times for visiting as this will depend upon the workload of the day. As we are not an emergency service urgent problems at home require an ambulance.
Please ensure that you ring to request a visit before 10.00am where possible. It is not possible to request a particular doctor.
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.
