If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit.
Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability and are always at the discretion of the doctor.
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.
A rash or temperature does not prevent patients coming to the surgery and will not endanger others. Simply tell the receptionist on arrival at the surgery.
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.
