There may well be occasions when you, or the person that you are looking after, is too unwell to come to the surgery. If this is the case, then it is possible for a doctor to visit you at home.
If you think that you may need a home visit, please try to phone the surgery before 11:00 in the morning. We expect most patients to attend the surgery, especially those with unwell children, where our facilities allow us to provide a better standard of care.
We are happy to visit patients who are medically housebound and consequently unable to come to the surgery. Please think very carefully before requesting a home visit. In the time that a doctor does one home visit, he or she can see six patients in the surgery, so please consider your requests very carefully.
If you, or the person you are requesting the home visit for is seriously unwell, please call an ambulance on 999.
