Please try to come to the surgery whenever possible as facilities here are far better for examination and treatment. If you feel that you are too ill to attend the surgery, please telephone before 10.00am to allow the doctors to plan their visits in order of priority. Requests after this time are for EMERGENCIES only. The receptionists will ask you for a few details about your symptoms to allow the doctor to assess the urgency of the call. Please remember that on average we can see five patients in the surgery in the time it takes to do one home visit. We are under no obligation to visit you because of “lack of transport”. It is your responsibility to arrange transport to the surgery whenever possible.
Should you need a home visit on a evening or weekend when the surgery is closed. Please call 111. Who can arrange home visits for you from the out of hours service.
