If you are too ill to come to the surgery a home visit can be arranged. Please telephone the surgery before 10.30am giving the patients full name, address and telephone number. Also please give a brief summary of the problem so that the Doctor can assess what could be needed prior to visiting.
If the visit is urgent please advise the receptionist thus avoiding unnecessary delay.
If you can get to the surgery, please do so. If you have a temperature or a rash, coming into the surgery will do no harm and will not endanger others. If a problem is very urgent we can then try to fit you in as soon as possible. Home visits are intended to be for those who are too ill to come to the surgery, not for those for whom it is inconvenient. Please remember that we can see several people at the surgery in the time it takes to do a home visit.
