Please only ask for a home visit if you are too ill to attend the surgery. Try to telephone before 10.00am on 0114 2697505 or 0114 2889777. Please remember however that most consultations are far better undertaken in the surgery with the benefit of the equipment therein. Very rarely should a child been seen at home.
When telephoning, explain the problem clearly to the receptionist. A doctor from the practice will aim to visit you within four hours, after the end of morning surgery. You may have to wait if the doctor is very busy and/or attending a more urgent call. We are unable to offer a choice of doctor for home visits. The doctor may telephone you to advise on the best course of action in relation to your illness. Advice only may be needed.
