Appointments must be made before 11:00 am on the day. This is allow appointments to be fufilled on the same day when the request was made.
Prior to the visit, the doctor may telephone you to decide whether or not a visit is appropriate for a particular set of circumstances.
We kindly request, apart from those genuinely housebound, that all patients attend the surgery. This request is made because the time taken to conduct one single home visit allows an average of 4 to 5 patients to be seen in the surgery. In addition, the care offered in any home visit is compromised due to inadequate lighting, examination facilities and equipment, that you may not receive a service as effective as what the doctor could offer if the care was given in the surgery.
