Telephone 335320 – The doctors do home visits when clinically necessary; it is helpful to request visits before 10.00am, then a doctor will return your call. Please note that if your telephone does not accept calls from “number withheld” callers we will not be able to telephone you. Please remember this when asking a doctor to call you back.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
