Patients are requested to telephone before 10.30am if a visit is required that day. Emergency visits will only be arranged after that time. Please give the receptionists as much information as possible to enable the doctor to allocate priority to house calls. Please remember that several patients can be seen at the surgery in the time it takes to do a home visit. You may request a specific GP but we cannot guarantee this GP will be the one to visit as the daily visits are shared out equally by all GP's working that day.
