Home visits are at the discretion of the doctor. Please phone before 10.00am. When the patient's condition genuinely warrants a home visit, please give the reception staff as much detail as possible - patient's full name, address, age, telephone number and the reason for the visit.
This information is vital for the doctor on-call to prioritise his rounds and allows urgent cases to be seen promptly. We realise that most people make a valiant effort to attend the surgery for which we are considerably grateful. Please remember that several patients can be seen in the surgery in the time it takes to do a home visit.
