If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit.
Although a patient may request a house visit, it is the doctor who decides, on the basis of medical need if a house visit is appropriate.
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.
Patients living outside the practice boundaries (10miles) will not be visited at home.
