Home visits are for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Requests must be made between 8.00am– 10.00am except in emergencies.
A doctor or Nurse Practitioner may phone you back as it may be a problem that can be assisted by a telephone consultation or it may be more appropriate for the Nurse Practitioner / District Nurse to attend or even arrange a hospital admission.
Please make it clear to the receptionist if you feel that you must have a Doctor immediately as this may necessitate Doctor telephoning immediately.
Please come to the surgery if at all possible rather than call Doctor out, remember several patients can be seen in the time it takes for one home visit. This Practice offers telephone consultations for patient’s unable to make it to the surgery.
