Home Visits

Generally patients will be expected to come to the surgery to be seen, unless genuinely house bound or their condition dictates they need a home visit. Patients requiring a home visit will be seen by the emergency doctor for that day, who may ring to discuss the reasons and timing for a visit. It will not be possible to give specific times for visiting as this will depend upon the workload of the day.

Please note requests for home visits must be made before 10:30 Monday to Friday. Any requests received after 10:30 will be triaged by the emergency doctor.

As we are not an emergency service urgent problems at home require an ambulance. Patients should dial 999 for emergencies. We follow the local medical committee’s guidelines on home visiting.
