Please ring before 10.30am. Patients are asked to attend the surgery where possible. Please try to make arrangements with family/friends/taxi to attend. Patients are expected to sort out their transport problems to attend the surgery. Those whose medical condition warrants it will be attended by a doctor at home.
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.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
