If you are too ill to come to the surgery and feel that you need to be seen at home, please ring the surgery before 10am if possible and be prepared to give a brief description of the problem.
This helps the doctors to plan their visits efficiently before leaving the surgery.
Although you have requested a visit, one of the doctors may phone you to see if telephone advice is appropriate.
Children can usually be seen more quickly if they are brought to the surgery. They will always be fitted in as quickly as possible. If you are expecting a visit, please ensure your house name or number is clearly visible and that you have ensured access is possible.
Should you improve and feel able to attend surgery following your visit request, please try to contact us to arrange an appointment at the surgery instead. We are always better equipped to treat patients at the surgery rather than at home.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
