These are at the discretion of the doctors and are meant for the elderly, housebound, terminally ill or those who are genuinely too ill to come to the surgery. A doctor can see up to five patients in the surgery in the time it takes to do one visit. Requests should be made before 10.30am. Please give details of your problem to the receptionist. A doctor will phone you back and if he/she thinks that your problem does not need a visit they will give appropriate advice. The doctors undertake visits between 1.00pm and 3.30pm.
