Home visits are reserved for the housebound, infirm and seriously ill patients. If you require a home visit please telephone between 8.30am and 10.30am where possible. You will usually be able to speak to a doctor to discuss the urgency of you request. However, if you are suffering from chest pain, severe breathlessness, collapse or symptoms of a stroke we advise you dial 999 for an ambulance. Please remember that several patients can be seen at the surgery in the time that it takes to do a home visit. Lack of transport is not a reason for a home visit.
