Our doctor provides home visits for patients whose illness prevents them from travelling to the surgery e.g. the housebound or terminally ill.
If you think you may need a doctor to visit you at home, please ring us as soon as possible. The receptionist will ask you for some information to pass on to the doctor, to help them decide how urgent the problem is and to plan the visit to you.
Please remember that visits are at doctor’s discretion and you may be offered telephone advice or be requested to attend the Surgery if we feel this is more appropriate. Usually we can deal with a problem much more quickly and effectively with the facilities we have at the Surgery so we would urge you to try and come in if possible. Please note that lack of transportation is not a valid reason for requesting a home visit.
