Home visits are for patients who are too ill to come to the surgery or housebound.
If you feel that you do need a home visit, please telephone the surgery before 10.30am on the day the visit is required. Please give the receptionist as much information as possible so that the doctor can give your request priority. Please tell the receptionist if you feel the visit is urgent.
Lack of transport is not a valid reason to request a home visit. Always come to the surgery if you can, so that your doctor has access to our full range of medical facilities. Please remember that several patients can be seen at the surgery in the time it takes to do a home visit.
Some problems can be sorted out over the telephone. You can book a telephone consultation with any of the doctors and do not need to give a reason for the appointment. Please note that a time slot will be allocated but the doctors make the calls after their morning clinics around lunch time.
Reception staff have to adhere to strict confidentiality guidelines. If you do not answer we will not leave a message unless given permission to do so by the patient.
