Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound or too sick to come to the surgery.

Our doctors typically see four patients at the practice in the time it takes to do a single home visit. For this reason, we ask our patients to come to the practice if at all possible. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the practice.

Please try to telephone reception before 11:00am if you require a home visit.

The doctor may phone you back to discuss your problem as it may be able to be managed with telephone advice. Alternatively the doctor may consider that it would be more appropriate to arrange a hospital visit.

Home visits are normally made between 1:00pm and 4:00pm.
