Please make your request for home visits before 10 am if a visit is required that day.
Only emergency visits will be arranged after that time.
This enables the doctor to plan their home visits efficiently.
Home visits are only done at the discretion of the doctors, so please do not ask for a visit unless the patient is genuinely too ill to come to the surgery.
Please remember that, particularly in the case of children who have fevers or rashes, the problem can be dealt with more quickly and efficiently in the surgery and any treatment, which may be prescribed, can be collected at the same time.
When you request a home visit, please give the receptionist full details of the patient’s name, address, age and reason for the visit.
We also need a telephone number where you can be contacted.
This information enables the doctors to prioritise their house calls.
