Please make every effort to come to the surgery so that we can more thoroughly assess your illness. This is usually quicker for the patient and makes best use of doctor's time. Please remember that home visits are for patients who are too ill to attend surgery. Please telephone before 10.30am and state clearly that you require a home visit.
Our reception staff have been instructed to ask for details of your illness so that we may assess the degree of urgency. They are not being nosey! Please remember that several patients can be seen at the surgery in the time that it takes to do a home visit.
