Home Visits

If possible please try to ring our appointments line before 11 am if you require a home visit. A doctor may phone you back, as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.

House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability. In most cases young adults or children will be expected to attend the surgery. Lack of transport is not a reason to visit at home. This is because several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. A more complete service can be offered at the surgery as there are better facilities for examining and treating patients.

To request a home visit please ring 01384 322444.
