Patients are requested to telephone before 10:30 to request a visit for that day. Only emergency visits will be arranged after that time. The practice nurse may triage the visits on behalf of the doctor. Please give her as much information as possible to enable the doctor to allocate priority to house calls.
Please remember that several patients can be seen at the surgery in the time that it takes to do a home visit. Small children can usually be brought in and we will see them as quickly as possible.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
