If you feel you need a doctor to visit you at home please phone the surgery before 10.00 am to help us prioritise our calls. You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. The doctors will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it. The doctor will telephone you to assess the situation further before they visit.
Please note we follow the guidelines issued by the NHS which state that home visits are made at the discretion of the doctors and are made where the clinical situation requires it.
Lack of transport is not a reason for a home visit. Examination of patients is usually far more satisfactory and complete in the surgery where there is the provision of good lighting and the necessary equipment.
