House calls are at the doctors’ discretion. This service is only for patients whose condition makes it impossible to attend the surgery.
When a house call is required, please:
- Phone the Practice before 10am (except in the case of an emergency).
- Give as much information as possible about your medical condition to the receptionist; this will help the doctor when he/she assesses your request.
- Ensure you provide up to date, relevant contact telephone numbers.
The receptionist will inform the duty doctor of your request, or seek immediate advice in an emergency. The doctor will need to speak to you to assess whether a visit is required.
Please refrain from ringing to check when the doctor is coming, unless your situation has changed for the worse and you have urgent concerns. Our receptionists will be happy to assist you in that instance.
