Home Visits

Please do not ask for a doctor to call unless the patient is housebound. Remember that the doctor can see four patients in the time it takes to make one visit and there are better facilities for examination and treatment in the surgery.

Except in the case of acute emergencies, all visit requests must be in by 11:00 on the day that the visit is required. Please be prepared to give some details so that the visiting doctor can assess priorities. A clinician may ring you if it seems that an alternative to a visit might be appropriate. For more information, please read our Home Visiting Policy.
