Please telephone your request for home visits before 11.00am for patients too ill to attend surgery. Home visits are reserved for the elderly, the housebound and those deemed by the doctor too ill to attend the surgery.
It is important to bear in mind that most medical problems are dealt with more effectively in the clinical setting of a well-equipped surgery or hospital. Patients should realise that home visits are made at the doctor's discretion.
A telephone encounter with the doctor may be necessary to assess the gravity of the medical condition.
