Scarborough Medical Group covers a large urban and rural area and some home visits may require a lot of travelling time. Please telephone the surgery before 10.30am if possible as this helps us to plan our visiting more efficiently. We are sorry but we have to limit home visits to patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse or, indeed, arrange a hospital attendance.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the surgeries.
