Home visits are reserved for patients who are truly housebound or incapacitated and cannot be brought to the surgery.
Visits should be telephoned through to the surgery before 11am.
In almost all cases children can be brought to the surgery where we have the best conditions for examination. This is safer for your child as urgent problems can be referred to the hospital quickly.
Some visits may not be made until the afternoon so please tell the receptionist if you think the visit cannot wait.
Unfortunately, the cost of travel cannot be a consideration in requests for house calls. Please ensure you have a system so that you can access transport by family, friends or taxi in an emergency.
