Home Visits are only for patients who cannot come to the practice for medical reasons and are at the discretion of the doctor. This is to make best use of GP time to benefit all our patients, and to ensure patients are seen with access to the medical facilities available in surgery.
Reasons for a home visit
Home visit requests are triaged by a GP in the morning and the patient may get a phone call before a visit.
If you are too ill to come to the surgery and need to be seen at home, please telephone the surgery as early as possible, preferably before 10am.
If you are calling on behalf of a patient, please provide your contact details to the receptionist as the doctor may wish to contact you before visiting. If your address could be difficult to find, please give directions to the receptionist.
