Home Visits

If you think you need to be visited at home please telephone the surgery before 10.30am and give the receptionist your phone number and some indication of the problem so that the visiting clinician can determine how urgent the visit is.

Home visits are offered to those who are acutely or chronically housebound. If you should request a medical assessment at home the Doctor, Urgent Care Practitioner or Minor illness nurse will usually phone you to assess whether visiting you at home is the most appropriate way of managing your problem.

The surgery has better lighting, medical equipment and tests to make the best assessment of patients, It is therefore in your best medical interests to attend the surgery if you can whenever you or someone you care for needs to see a clinician.
