Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:30am
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls. If you have a temperature or a rash, coming in to the surgery will do no harm and will not endanger others but please inform the receptionist on arrival. Please be prepared to be asked some details to enable us to assess priorities. Home visits will normally be made after morning surgery and before afternoon surgery.
