We will visit those patients at home who are housebound because of illness or infirmity. Please note that three or four patients can be seen at the surgery in the time it takes to do one home visit. Therefore, please do not expect us to visit those who might reasonably attend the surgery.
Lack of transport is not an acceptable reason for requesting a visit.
If possible, please request home visits before 10:00 so that the doctors can plan their rounds accordingly after morning surgery. There is always a doctor on duty who deals with requests for urgent visits.
Our receptionists will ask for essential details of any problem so that the doctor can judge the degree of need or urgency.
