Home visits may be available for patients who are truly bed bound and medically unable to come to the surgery.
Requests are triaged by the doctor and then it is for the doctor to decide, based on his/her reasonable opinion, as to whether the patient should attend the surgery or be visited at home.
We urge all patients to attend the surgery if possible because a properly equipped and staffed environment provides a higher quality of care and usually a quicker response. Also the doctor can see up to four patients at the surgery for every one home visit.
To arrange a home visit please telephone the practice before 10.30am.
