If possible please try to telephone your registered GP’s PA before 10am if you require a home visit.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, Emergency Care Practitioner or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
Sometimes problems can be solved over the telephone. Our doctors and nurses are normally available at the end of morning surgery. Our staff can arrange for your Doctor or a Nurse to telephone you.
