Please make every effort to attend the surgery if at all possible. If you cannot do this, please telephone between 8.00 and 10.30am to request the doctor to call. Calls after this time will be dealt with by the duty doctor on a priority basis.
Remember the doctor can see approximately five patients in the surgery during the time it takes to do one home visit, and it is at the doctor's discretion as to whether a home visit is deemed necessary. Transport problems are not an acceptable reason for requesting a home visit.
