If you are housebound or too ill to attend surgery and think you may need a visit, please telephone your doctor's surgery as soon as possible before 11.00am.
Be prepared to give the receptionist details of your name, age, address, phone number, your usual doctor and the reason for your request. All this information remains confidential. The doctor will need these details to plan the most appropriate response to your problem and may well phone back for more details before leaving the surgery.
Home visits are not considered to be a routine service. The Doctor can deal with several patients at the surgery in the time it takes to visit one patient at home so please think carefully before requesting a home visit.
