We will happily provide home visits where they are clinically justified, e.g. to housebound patients and the terminally ill.
If you wish to request a home visit, please contact the surgery as soon as possible so that doctors can plan their visits.
Please try to get to the surgery if at all possible – the doctor can see 4 or 5 patients in the time it takes to do one home visit. We are unable to do home visits simply for patient convenience – there must be a genuine health reason.
Except in exceptional circumstances we will always ask for small children to be brought to the surgery, where we believe we can offer the best care and undertake a more thorough assessment.
