Can’t attend surgery but need to see a doctor?

Visits requested are for people who are too ill or disabled to attend surgery. For non-urgent visits within working hours please telephone before 10:30 on the day the visit is required.

You may request a visit if you feel that it is necessary on these grounds. Usually a doctor will telephone and gather more information before deciding whether or not a visit is necessary. It is the doctor’s decision whether the patient’s care needs a home visit.

It would help the doctor to plan the order of visits if you give some information about why the visit is requested and any instructions that would make finding your address easier.

Please give a contact telephone number so the doctor can contact you if further information is needed.
