If you feel unable to consult the doctor at the surgery because of illness and feel a house call is necessary, please telephone the surgery, where possible before 10:00. You will be asked to give your name, address, telephone number and a brief summary of your symptoms to allow the doctors to assess the degree of urgency of your call.
The doctor may call back to gain a fuller picture of the problem and will decide if a house call is required. Urgent calls will be dealt with as soon as possible.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
