Home visits can be very time consuming for the doctors and other patients. They are for patients too seriously ill to come to surgery. Patients with a rash or temperature may still come to the surgery and will be seen more quickly this way.
If you require a home visit please ring 023 9223 9630 before 10.00am giving the following details: Patients name, address, telephone number, usual doctor and a brief description of the problem. This will enable the doctor to assess the urgency and deal with the problem appropriately.
Out of Hours
If you need a doctor in an emergency and the surgery is closed, ring the main number (023 9223 9630) and you will be given contact numbers for the duty doctor.
