We will happily provide home visits where they are clinically justified, for example to house-bound patients and the terminally ill.
If you wish to request a home visit please contact the surgery as soon as possible so that the doctor may plan his 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 - we are able to undertake a more thorough assessment with surgery facilities and we can usually see young children more quickly by squeezing them between existing appointments.
