If you request a home visit, the doctor may call you back to find out more about your problem before deciding to come out.
You are encouraged to come in to the clinic because this is where the best care can be provided. Specialist equipment is here, tests can be carried out more easily and drugs issued if necessary.
A home visit may be undertaken when:
- the patient is confined due to illness or disability
- urgent treatment can be given more quickly by visiting.
Please note our out-of-hours service is only for urgent medical problems that cannot wait until the next day to be treated.
