Ideally, all patients should be seen in the surgery, where we have access to facilities. Should you need to see a doctor quickly and are able to come to the surgery; an urgent appointment will be arranged. However, should you be housebound or too ill to attend the surgery, a home visit may be requested by telephoning the surgery before 10:30.
The receptionist will need to ask your name, address and telephone number along with brief details of the problem. The GP will then contact you to discuss your problem and you may be referred to the Acute Care Team.
Please ask for a home visit only if it is really necessary. Lack of transport or looking after other children is not a valid reason.
