We prefer to see patients in the surgery wherever possible but we recognise that there may be occasions that individuals cannot come to the surgery due to illness or disability. If you do require the Doctor to attend you at your home, please discuss this with the Receptionist when you phone.
If at all possible, please telephone before 9.30 am. You will routinely be asked if you can come to the surgery and in certain circumstances a Doctor may call you back to establish further details, including whether it would be more appropriate to send a Nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability. You will appreciate that in busy traffic a single home visit can take up to an hour (6 normal appointments). In some circumstances, where the Doctor feels it is more appropriate, you may be asked to attend the surgery.
