During Surgery Hours - Telephone 727531
If you are unwell and think you may require a home visit, please ring the above number before 10:30 if possible. Home visits will only be made where the doctor considers that there is a medical need. The doctor may ring back before coming to see you in order to obtain more details, as there may be a more appropriate way of dealing with the problem, such as a direct referral to hospital.
Pets and Home Visits
- Are you too unwell to attend the Surgery and require a home visit?
- Do you have a pet in the house?
If you have answered yes to both of the above please consider the safety of our Clinicians and ensure your pet is shut in another room for the duration of the visit.
You may not consider your pet to be dangerous, but pets can be unpredictable particularly if they feel their owner is under threat. An examination by the doctor may be seen by your pet as a threat and they may attack, out of character, to protect.
Our clinicians want to ensure that all patients receive the best care possible. Please help them to deliver the best care by ensuring their safety is not jeopardised whilst they carry out your home visit.
When requesting a home visit our receptionist will ask you if you have a pet in the house and ask you to ensure that any pets are shut in another room before the doctor enters the house and is not released until after the doctor has left.
Thank you for your co-operation.
