Please be aware that it is not a GP’s responsibility to issue school letters of absence for your children, regarding COVID-19 or other illness. Government guidance is that school attendance is mandatory unless your child is self-isolating, has symptoms of COVID-19 or is close to someone who has COVID-19.

Home VisitsDoctor's bag

Home visits are made at the discretion of the doctor and are usually reserved for the severely ill, very elderly or house bound patients.

The Reception staff will ask you for details of the problem which will be passed to the Doctor.  The Doctor may decide to telephone you before the visit and may ask you to attend surgery if they feel this is more appropriate.  This will often result in you being seen sooner.

If you are not sure whether you need to be seen at home or at the surgery, your doctor will be able to advise you.  For instance babies and children with fever, diarrhoea, vomiting, earache or a rash should be brought to the surgery and seen quickly.  Adults with similar illnesses can also be seen quicker at the surgery.

Requests for home visits should preferably be made before 11.00 am as this allows the doctor to plan visits more efficiently.
