If you feel a home visit is required then please telephone BEFORE 11.00am. The receptionist will take some information about your request, which will be passed to the oncall Doctor who may phone you back to discuss your request further. Please note that we have a strict housecall policy and visits are made at the doctor’s discretion. This service is provided for patients whose condition makes it impossible for them to attend the surgery. We can attend three patients in the medical centre in the time it takes to do one housecall and it is almost always the best place to be seen, where all means of examination, diagnosis and treatment are at hand.
