Home Visits

homevisitsTo arrange a home visit for those who are disabled or too unwell to attend the surgery, please telephone the surgery before 10.00am or the day before. It is helpful to the doctor if you can give the receptionist an indication of the urgency of the problem

A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.

House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
