If you feel you require a home visit, the receptionist will take your details, including a brief summary of your problem and a contact telephone number. The doctor will then contact you to assess your problem. As happens with the emergency service, NHS24, the doctor may arrange direct referral to the hospital, arrange a suitable surgery appointment time, visit you at home, or simply advise on what to do.
Emergency home visits will be made by the duty doctor.
