If you need to request a home visit because you are housebound or too ill to come to surgery, please ring before 10.30am. Describe your symptoms to the Service Advisor – this allows the doctors and nurses to plan their rounds according to urgency. The doctor may ring you first to assess the need for a visit.
Remember there are better examination and treatment facilities at the surgery and a home visit takes at least twice as much time for the doctor.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
