Patients are requested to telephone before 11.00 if a home visit is required that day. The earlier you ring the better it will be for the GP to organise any visit requests.
We would request that, apart from the genuinely housebound, all other patients attend the surgery rather than request a home visit because of the extra time home visiting takes. On average six patients can be seen in surgery in the time it takes to do a single house call.
Please note that the doctor may telephone you rather than visit you if this is medically appropriate.
