Home Visits

Home visits may be provided for patients who are unable to attend the surgery due to illness or disability.

Unfortunately home visits are very time consuming so we are unable to offer home visits for other reasons such as lack of transport. We appreciate your help in making the best use of our doctors’ time.

The doctors will often phone to ensure a visit is needed and to prioritise their visits. Sometimes a visit is not indicated and problems can be dealt with over the phone.

If you require a home visit, please telephone before 11:00 unless it is an emergency and please give some indication of the reason to help us assess priority.

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 Practice.
