Please only ask the doctor to call if the patient is too ill to attend either surgery. If you are in doubt, you may discuss the matter with one of the doctors on the telephone. Please try to phone before 11am.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
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.
