We do ask that whenever possible you come to the surgery to be seen by the doctor. The doctors will visit patients at home if they are too ill to attend. Please telephone the surgery before 10.30am with requests for a home visit, if at all possible. Only ask for visits if absolutely necessary, as the doctor can see four patients in the surgery in the same time taken to visit one at home. The doctor also has better conditions and facilities for sorting out your problems at the surgery. Lack of transport alone is not a valid reason for requesting a visit.
