Requests for home visits should reach the surgery before 10.00am if possible and are usually assessed on the phone by a Doctor. Please note that home visits are reserved for patients who are truly housebound on medical grounds only. Home visits are allocated between the doctors working on the day and are usually carried out between 13:00 and 15:00.
Urgent home visit requests must be discussed with the on-call nurse or duty doctor.
We encourage patients to make their best efforts to attend the Surgery to make effective use of the doctors’ or nurses’ time and practice resources.
