Home visits are done at the Doctor’s discretion for patients that are too ill to attend the surgery. Lack of transport is not a valid reason to request a home visit.
To request a home visit please phone the surgery BEFORE 10.00AM as the Doctors start their visiting rounds soon after this. You will be asked to give the receptionist some indication of the patient’s symptoms and degree of urgency as this helps us to plan visits. Please be considerate and remember that the Doctor can see up to 10 patients in surgery in the time it takes to do one home visit. Patients with infectious illnesses can be seated separately at the surgery whilst waiting - please ask at reception.
