Home Visits

Home visits are available on request for patients who are housebound, terminally ill or too ill to come to the surgery. All requests for home visits will be assessed by a doctor.

At home the doctor will only have limited equipment and it is often difficult to perform a full assessment of your symptoms. It is therefore essential that if it is at all possible that you attend the Surgery to see the doctor.

If you are house-bound or too ill to attend the surgery and require a home visit please contact the surgery before 10.00am. You may be asked to speak to the nurse or duty Doctor in order that the request is dealt appropriately.

A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice.

Calls are usually distributed geographically unless a particular doctor is attending a particular patient, thus you may not necessarily be visited by your preferred doctor.
