Home visits are usually for housebound and terminally ill patients. We ask that whenever possible you should attend the surgery, as the doctor can usually see 3-4 patients in the time it takes to do one house call.
If you feel you are too ill to attend the surgery, please contact the surgery on 0191 2662215 before 10.30am if possible. The reception staff will briefly ask the reason for the visit and your request will be passed on to Sister Sally Morrison. She will telephone to discuss the problem with you to assess the best course of action.
