The duty of a General Practitioner is to provide an efficient delivery of care to all patients.
We encourage our patients to attend the surgery whenever possible. This is because all our resources and facilities are within the surgery, and if you require any investigations and/or treatment, these can be initiated in the consultation.
You will only be offered a home visit if the doctor feels that it is clinically necessary to do so. Sometimes, the telephone call consultation is all that is needed to resolve your problem.
We appreciate your understanding of this, as unnecessary home visits result in a loss of valuable doctors’ time.
