If you are too ill to get to the surgery, please telephone before 10.00 am to request a visit at home.
The receptionist may ask for details of your illness to help the doctors to plan their visits.
Home visits are time consuming (six patients can be seen in the surgery in the same time that it takes for one visit) so please only request a visit when it is really necessary.
It is not always necessary for you to come to the surgery. Sometimes problems can be dealt with on the telephone. All doctors and nurses have telephone appointments, which are booked at specific times.
