If your condition requires a home visit please telephone the surgery before 10.00 am if possible. The receptionist may ask about your illness so that the doctors can see the most urgent cases first and plan their rounds.
We curently have an Emergency Care Practitioner working with the GPs, to provide some home visits for patients. The GPs will have reviewed the patients before asking the ECP to visit and they will have full access to your records so that they are fully aware of your conditions.
Home visits are very time consuming and should only be requested when you are too ill to attend the surgery.
If you require a doctor urgently please explain this to the receptionist.
