Home Visits

Home visits are at the discretion of the doctor and are intended solely for patients too ill or frail to undertake a journey. The doctor may ask if you can come to the surgery, as the facilities and equipment for examination, investigation, treatment and referral are all to hand.

If you are too ill to attend surgery, a request for a home visit should be made before 11:00, as most home visits are carried out over the lunch-time period.

Our nurse practitioner or a doctor may initially telephone you to help ensure those with the most urgent medical needs are given priority with their visit and if necessary will obtain directions to your home.
