We know it is sometimes difficult, but please try and telephone for a home visit request before 10.00 am. Please give the receptionist as much information as possible to enable the doctor to allocate suitable priority.
A doctor or nurse may telephone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it may be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
Many of our home visit requests are dealt with by our Advanced Nurse Practitioner who is able to prescribe medications.
Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
