Home visits for those patients who are housebound, disabled or too ill to come to the surgery should be requested, whenever possible, before 10.45 am.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
On average visiting you at home takes four times as long as a surgery consultation, so please try and get to the surgery if at all possible. To request a home visit please ring any of the three numbers listed above and select option 5 for general enquiries.
