When and how can I book a Home Visit?
The GPs undertake their home visits between their morning and afternoon clinics. Roughly between 12:00 – 14:00. Therefore you are requested to telephone reception by 10:30. This gives us time to allocate visits appropriately. Visits are only for the housebound and because of lack of transportation.
