In line with modern practice, patients should normally be seen in efficient, well-lit and well-equipped surgeries. We will, however, see the terminally ill, truly housebound and severely ill in their home should the need arise. If you ask for a home visit a doctor or nurse will probably speak to you when you telephone.
If you do request a home visit then you MUST:
- Telephone before 11.00am, so that we are able to plan our visit schedule.
- Provide the receptionist with some details of the problem.
If you do not do these things then we cannot guarantee a visit on the same day.
