Home visits, unless in an emergency, should be requested before 10.30.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Please remember that several patients can be seen within the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. The GP surgery also offers better facilities for examining and treating patients.
