Home visits are only intended for patients who are too ill or frail to undertake a trip to the surgery. In order to obtain all of the relevant information, the receptionist will ask you about your illness and contact details.
Whenever possible a request for a home visit should be made before 11am. Most visits are carried out between morning and afternoon surgery.
One of the doctors may speak to you to before coming out. This helps them to medically prioritise their visits for the day.
