As the doctors are very busy we ask for your co-operation in attending surgery whenever possible.
If however, a home visit is considered necessary, due to being housebound, please telephone before 10:00 Monday to Friday as this assists in the planning of doctor visits in the early afternoon.
It is helpful if you can give the Receptionist an indication of the problem so that the doctor can prioritise the urgency of the request. Always ensure there is a contact telephone number in case the doctor wishes to speak with you prior to the visit.
Patients recently discharged from hospital, who need nursing follow up, will routinely be seen by the district nursing team.
