Home visits are only made where the severity of your medical condition makes it impossible for you to attend surgery. Wherever possible you should make your visit request before 10:00 and the doctor will telephone you to discuss your condition, so please ensure you leave a contact number.
It may be possible for the doctor to deal with your problem over the phone, or it may be more appropriate to send a Nurse or arrange a hospital attendance.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the surgery in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the surgery.
