If you are not well enough to attend the surgery but it is not an emergency, ask for the doctor to visit by telephoning reception before 10:00. You will be asked for a brief description of the problem to help the doctor to assess the urgency of your case and to bring the appropriate equipment or medication when they visit.
Doctors make home visits at the end of morning surgery. Children that are ill will always be fitted in as soon as possible if brought to the surgery (this is quicker than waiting for a home visit).
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
