Please telephone reception before 10:30am if you require a home visit. Visits requested after this time may be deferred to the next day.
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. Home visits may not be on the same day as requested, and may not be by your usual care provider.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
