Please, only ask for a home visit if you are too ill to come to the surgery. Please be reassured that most children, even if they are unwell, can quite safely be brought to the surgery by car.
Please ensure that your request for a home visit reaches the surgery before 10.00 am, unless a genuine emergency arises later.
To help judge the urgency of your call, please describe your symptoms to the receptionist who will inform the doctor.
S/he will phone back to fully assess the situation. Visits are usually made after morning surgery.
