Please request home visits by 11am, if possible, so that the doctors can plan their day. It would be helpful if you could indicate the nature of the problem, so that urgent cases are given priority. A doctor will telephone the patient to determine whether a visit is necessary. Visits are organised according to geographical area, so you may not see the doctor you requested.
The surgeries at Camelford and St Breward are accessible by patients using a wheelchair. The Delabole surgery is not accessible by wheelchair due to a deep step. One of the consulting rooms in Camelford is upstairs, however if this will cause any difficulty, please let the receptionist know, at the time of booking, so that alternative arrangements can be made.
