If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit.
Home visits should only be requested for patients who are seriously ill or housebound. The receptionist will ask for some information about symptoms. This is fully confidential and enables the doctors to determine the priority and timing of visits.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed, arrange a hospital attendance.
It is important to bear in mind that most medical problems are dealt with more effectively in the clinical setting of a well equipped surgery or hospital.
