Where possible we try to get people to come to the surgery, not only does this save time but it allows us to deal with problems more quickly in the day e.g. arranging admission. It also means we have more tools on hand e.g. blood taking, heart tracing machines etc and therefore may make the diagnosis easier.
When you ring to request a visit a doctor will ring you back to discuss the request and get directions etc.
We do not visit children usually as they are portable and can be brought down by car.
