Whenever possible we ask you to come to the surgery for appointments as we have full access to your records and to treatment facilities. You can usually be seen sooner if you can come to the surgery as we can see three or four patients in the surgery in the time it takes to do one home visit.
If you are too unwell to come in please try to phone in before your appointmet. If you are unsure whether you need a visit, reception can arrange for you to get advice from one of the doctors. If the doctor feels your problem would be appropriately dealt with in the surgery then you will be offered an appointment and the home visit request declined.
Please note that the timing of a visit cannot be guaranteed.
