If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:30 if you require a home visit.
Home visits are at the discretion of the attending doctor, and the attending doctor may call you in advance of his/her visit. Home visits are not usually given to children or for self limiting illnesses. Children will more often than not be expected to attend the surgery so as not to delay a diagnosis.
Home visits are for the terminally ill and the bed-bound, not the housebound; lack of transportation, for whatever reason, is not an indication for a home visit.
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 surgery.
