Home Visits

Home visits are for those who are too ill or infirm to come to the surgery.

Unless it is an emergency you will probably be seen more quickly by making an appointment at the surgery. The doctor can see several patients in the surgery in the time that it takes to make one house call and usually he/she will have better equipment and facilities at the surgery to examine you and treat your problem.

Please note that lack of transport cannot be accepted as a reason for a home visit, nor does the Practice provide transport services.  

Requests for home visits should be made before 11:00 to enable your doctor to plan the day. You will need to speak with a receptionist to book a home visit.

Please note that home visits are only available during core hours, and that at weekends, evenings and Bank Holidays any problems will be dealt with the Out of Hours Service.
