Home visits are at the discretion of the doctor. Please do not ask the doctor to call unless the patient is genuinely too ill to come to the surgery. If the patient has a temperature or rash, coming to the surgery will do no harm and will not endanger others.
When you feel the condition of the patient does require a home visit:
PLEASE PHONE AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE AND IN ANY CASE BEFORE 10.30AM ON THE SAME DAY THE VISIT IS REQUIRED.
You will then be transferred to our triage nurse or nurse practitioner, who will take full details of the patient’s symptoms and will then decide on the best course of action for each individual patient.
