Requests for a home visit should be made before 10.30am. Details of the patients’ condition must be given to the receptionist so that the doctor can assess the urgency of any visit. Home visits must only be requested when a patient is unfit to attend the surgery.
Except in emergencies, we prefer the doctor not to be interrupted during surgery. If the receptionist is unable to answer your query we can arrange for the doctor to contact you should this be necessary.
