Home Visits

Home visits are very time consuming and we would ask you to come to the surgery if at all possible. It is much easier to carry out necessary investigations and treatment at the surgery and usually you will be seen more quickly than waiting for a visit.

If your medical condition prevents you from attending the surgery and you require a home visit please phone before 9:30am if possible, the doctor will then assess whether the request is medically appropriate; if not appropriate you will be asked to attend the surgery.

Phoning early and explaining what is wrong with the patient will help the doctor plan their round and see the most urgent cases first.
