Please telephone your request for home visits between 8.45am and 10.30am. This helps the Doctors to plan their rounds. It is desirable that some of the details of the patient's condition should be given so that the Doctor can assess the urgency of the call.
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.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
