We ask our patients to visit the surgery if at all possible, as our doctors can see several patients at the practice in the time it takes to make a single home visit. Home visits are only offered to patients who are unable to get to the surgery for medical reasons, and whose condition is medically urgent.
Home visits are only offered to patients who are truly housbound or have certain medical conditions eg. terminal care patients.
It is not appropriate to visit patients at home because of patient transport problems
Babies and children can usually be brought to the surgery even when ill and will always be fitted in quickly if necessary.
To request a home visit, please:
- Call the surgery on 01789269386 before 10.30am.
- Be prepared to tell the receptionist about your condition so we can prioritise the most urgent cases and arrange the most appropriate course of action.
- Ensure the surgery has up to date details of your address and telephone number.
