If you are too ill to attend then please ring the surgery, if possible before 10.30am so that the rounds can be planned. We realise that most people make considerable efforts to get to the surgery and we are grateful for that.
Home visits can take up a considerable time and may result in the doctor being unavailable for emergencies.
Give full details and directions to the receptionist if you do require a home visit.
Lack of transport is not in itself a reason for a home visit.
If you telephone after 10.30am a visit will only be made the same day if the doctor considers the problem urgent.
