Home Visits


How to Arrange a Home Visit

Home visits are available, by arrangement, only for patients who are housebound, terminally ill or too ill to come to the surgery.

Please telephone prior to 10am on the day as this enables us to organise our visits.

Details of the home visit request will be recorded by our receptionist and passed to the Doctor who may contact you by telephone prior to visiting to obtain clinical information. All visits are at the doctors' discretion.

This practice aims to ensure all patients have access to a Healthcare Professional within 48 hours.

Please Remember

The doctor can see 5 patients at the surgery in the time it takes to visit 1 patient at home. At home the doctor will only have limited equipment and it is often difficult to perform a full assessment of your condition. It is therefore essential that if it is at all possible that you attend the surgery to see the doctor.
