If you are too ill to come to the surgery and genuinely need a home visit please telephone before 10.30am so the doctors can plan their calls. Home visits are normally undertaken between midday and 3pm and are often preceded by the GP contacting the patient.
Please only request visits is absolutely necessary. The majority of children can travel to the surgery when ill and distance or lack of transport is not valid reasons for a home visit. A GP may refuse to visit if they deem the request to be unnecessary; you will then be offered an appointment at the surgery.
