Home visits are made at the discretion of your doctor. You do not have an automatic right to expect a home visit. Please do not ask your doctor to call unless the patient is genuinely too ill to come to the surgery. A rash or temperature does not prevent patients coming to the surgery and will not endanger others. Simply tell the receptionist on arrival. Where the condition of the patient does require a home visit, please try to let us know before 10.00am each day.
