We only visit homes in an emergency or if you are unfit to travel due to illness. Telephone requests for home visits should, where possible, be made by 10:00 (Monday - Friday). Please telephone 028 9331 5955 and be prepared to give our staff some idea of your symptoms to help us plan our visits.
It is estimated that, on average, the GPs can see at least five patients in the surgery in the same amount of time that it takes to undertake a single home visit. Therefore if you can get to the surgery please do so. If you are feeling poorly when you arrive we will do our utmost to see you as quickly as possible.
We are aware of how worrying it can be to have a sick child. If you are concerned about your child we will always see them the same day at the surgery. We do ask that you bring your child to the surgery rather than requesting a home visit. A child will come to no harm being brought to the health centre and can usually be seen sooner. Your co-operation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
