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.
