If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:30am if you require a home visit and explain the nature of your problem to the receptionist. This will allow the doctor to assess the urgency of your problem and plan the visiting round accordingly.
Doctors will visit patients in their own homes if they are too ill or incapacitated to come to the surgery. 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.
