Home Visits - 0131 651 1000
Requests for home visits should be made only if the patient is too ill or infirm to come to the surgery. If possible please telephone 0131 651 1000 before 10.30 a.m. when requesting a home visit as this allows the doctors on call to plan their visits. The receptionist will ask about the problem; this is to enable the doctors to give priority to urgent cases. If you think the problem is an emergency, please tell the receptionist who will arrange for you to speak to a doctor.
Please remember, a doctor can see up to eight patients in the surgery in the time it takes to do one home visit.
Requests for home visits made later than 10.30 will be referred to one of the doctors. A visit will be offered only if the problem is urgent; any non-urgent visit may be arranged for another day.
