Home Visits.

  • Home visits are usually only to those patients too ill or infirm to attend surgery.
  • We would be grateful if you could bear this in mind when requesting a home visit as they are very time consuming and may disrupt other services the practice provides if requested inappropriately.
  • It is helpul if you are able to let our reception staff know the nature of your problem when you request a home visit so we can assess its urgency.

Home visits should be requested ideally before 10am.

You may be asked to discuss your request for a home visit with a Doctor who may suggest other ways of managing your problem.
