House calls are at the discretion of the Doctor. Please do not ask the Doctor to call unless the patient is genuinely too ill to come to the Health Centre.
A rash or temperature does not prevent patients coming to the Health Centre and will not endanger others. Simply tell the Receptionist on arrival.
Where the condition of the patient does require a house call please try to let us know before 10.00am.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
