These are made according to medical need. Please try to make the request before 10:30 so that the doctors can plan their rounds. If very unwell, call as soon as possible – the doctor may ring you soon afterwards. A GP is available between 08:00 and 08:40 to do emergency visits before the surgery starts.
We cover patients in an area of about 150 square miles. In the time taken to visit one patient at home it is possible to see several patients in the surgery. If at all possible we ask patients to come to the surgery to be seen.
This also means that you will be seen more quickly and we will have all the equipment we need, help from the nurses and immediate access to the dispensary.
If you are requesting a visit to a location outside the practice area we can only see you at the surgery. If you want a home visit in this instance you will be asked to contact a more local surgery.
