We make home visits when someone is too ill to come to the Surgery. These visits take up a lot of time, so we restrict them to only very genuine cases at the discretion of a doctor; as several patients can be seen in the Practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit.
We also provide home visits for patients who are normally housebound or seriously ill/disabled.
To request a home visit, please telephone the surgery (before 10:30 if possible). You will be asked for your (or the patient’s) name, date of birth, address, telephone number and reason for the visit. The doctor may wish to speak to you (or the patient) before visiting if any further information is necessary.
