Home Visits

It is not customary for Doctors to provide routine home visits. Patients too ill or inform to come to the surgery can be visited at the doctor’s Discretion. You are genuinely unable to visit the surgery, please telephone before 11:00 am.

Try to give the receptionist some idea of the problem, the doctor needs this information to plan his or her rounds and attend to the most urgent calls first and may ring back to clarify the request.

Please do not request an immediate visit unless you feel there is real emergency because of the disruption this causes to surgeries. In the time it takes to visit you at home the doctor can see several patients in surgery.
