If you need a home visit please telephone the surgery between 08.00am and 10.30am if possible. This will help the doctors and district nurses to plan their rounds and avoid unnecessary delays.
Only patients too frail to visit the surgery, the physically handicapped, or those confined to bed, shall be visited at home. Home visits can only be justified on medical not social, weather, transportation, or financial grounds. Misuse of the service inevitably results in delays to urgent cases.
