Our doctors typically see four patients at the practice in the time it takes to do a single home visit. For this reason, we ask our patients to come to the surgery if at all possible. However, we can visit you at home if your condition means you cannot attend the surgery.
Please ring the surgery before 11.30am to arrange a visit. The doctor (or care navigation nurse) may wish to speak with you to see if it would be better for you to come to the surgery to be seen immediately. Home visits are normally made between 12-midday and 4pm.
Please come to the surgery if possible. Except in an Emergency.
Home visits are strictly for those patients who are medically not fit to travel.
It is the patient’s responsibility to arrange transport to the surgery.
