Home Visits

contactusPlease only ask for a home visit if it is strictly necessary and the patient is genuinely too ill to come to surgery.

If you feel a home visit is required, please give the receptionist full details of the patient, the address, telephone number and the nature of the illness. When the condition does require a home visit, please try to give notice before 10am on the day the visit is required.

A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.

House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.

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.
