Doctors are happy to do home visits for patients who are bed bound and unable to attend the surgery, but as they are time consuming it is much appreciated if patients can come to the surgery. Requests for a home visit are taken up to 11.30am. Please explain to the receptionist what is wrong so that more urgent calls can be seen first.
The Nurse or Doctor will deal with a request for an urgent visit during surgery times.
Requests for an urgent visit outside surgery times will be dealt with by the Nurses who are able to give advice, assess urgency of the visit and notify the Doctor on duty if necessary.
