Home visits should only be requested by elderly and/or infirm patients too ill to travel to the surgery. We would be grateful if you could phone before 10:30 to enable the doctor to plan their rounds. Requests are usually vetted so that the doctor can attend cases according to their urgency.
In some cases you may be asked to attend the surgery. Please note, the practice also funds a transport scheme to enable otherwise housebound patients to attend surgery for appointments rather than relying on home visits. Please ask the receptionists for further details.
For an urgent visit, please phone the surgery (689111). The receptionist will contact the doctor on call.
If however your call relates to a life threatening emergency please call 999.
