If possible please try to telephone before 10.00 am.
A doctor may take your call or call you back as your problem may possibly be able to be dealt with by telephone advice, or arrange a hospital attendance.
Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of an illness or disability.
This will help the doctors to plan their visits and avoid unnecessary delays.
Please be aware the doctor can see approximately five patients in the surgery in the time it takes to do a home visit and it is at the doctors discretion as to whether a home visit is deemed necessary.
There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients in a clinical setting.
