If possible, please try to telephone reception before 10:30am if you require a home visit.
Your telephone number will be taken, along with the reason you are requesting the visit. Please give the receptionist as much information as possible, so that the Doctor can give your request due priority. A GP or Advanced Practitioner will call you back to assess the need for a visit, take further information and advise you if someone will be attending . It may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a Nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
Please remember that there are better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre, not to mention that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. Therefore, home visits should only be requested for patients who are permanently housebound because of illness or disability, or are genuinely too unwell to come to the surgery on the day.
