Home visits are an important part of the service we offer. However, because of the ever increasing pressure on time we are only able to offer this service if attendance at the surgery is not possible.
Please remember that several patients can be seen at the surgery in the time it takes to do a home visit, so we normally expect patients to come to the surgery unless they are medically unfit to attend.
The doctor may request that you attend the surgery, as it is the best place to make a thorough examination of patients and to arrange any tests and treatments that are needed.
Patients are requested to telephone the practice before 10.00am if a visit is required that day.
Please give the receptionist as much information as possible to enable the doctor to allocate priority to house calls.
