You will often be seen by a doctor more quickly if you can attend surgery where examination facilities are better. The time taken for a home visit is around four times that for a surgery consultation. Please only request a visit if it is really necessary.
If you really can’t come to the surgery to be seen please telephone the secretarial team (option 2) as early in the day as possible to request a home visit. Your details will be relayed to the doctor on call.
Please be prepared to give some information about your problem as well as your name, address and telephone number. This allows the doctors to prioritise calls and deal with urgent calls promptly.
