The Doctor will visit patients at home if they are elderly or medically unfit to attend the surgery. Transport problems are not a reason for a visit request. Home visits take much more time and do not always provide ideal conditions for necessary examinations, so you will be asked to attend the surgery whenever possible. If a home visit is required (except in emergencies) please telephone the surgery before 10.00am. Please give the Receptionist as much information as possible. This will help the Doctor to decide priorities.
