If babies and children are unwell they would be seen more quickly by attending the Surgery. If it is cold, they can be wrapped up well and brought to the Surgery quite safely. Parents who have more than one child can usually contact a friend or relative to look after the rest of the family allowing them to attend the Surgery with the unwell child. When requesting a home visit, patients if not in bed, should be dressed in a dressing gown and have a urine sample ready for testing.
