Home Visits


Requesting a home visit

The Doctors try to visit patients at home during the time between morning surgery and their various afternoon commitments. Home visits are for people unable to attend surgery because of severe illness or disability; you should always try to attend surgery if it is at all possible because in the time it takes to visit a patient at home, a Doctor can see five or six people at the surgery.

If you do need to be visited at home please telephone as early in the morning as possible, and certainly before the Doctors have left on their visits by mid-day. Small children can usually be brought to the surgery by car and this will enable the child to be seen more quickly than waiting for a visit - the Receptionists will always try to fit in an urgent case as quickly as possible.
