Requesting a Visit
The doctors now telephone all patients who request a home visit to ascertain if it is appropriate for them to visit. They will ask you about your symptoms and make a decision whether the visit is needed and inform you of their decision.
The doctor’s would not ordinarily accept a home visit unless the person needing it was housebound and unable to get out of the house. Please do not request a home visit unless it is for genuine reasons.
If you do require a home visit, please wherever possible telephone the practice before 10:30 so that the doctors can organise their visits after surgery.
