Home Visits

homevisitsIf you feel you require a home visit please try to telephone the Reception before 10am. This will enable the doctors to plan their workload for the day.

You will be informed that a doctor or nurse practitioner will phone you back. It may be that your problem can be resolved by telephone, or it may be more appropriate to send a district nurse to visit you, or arrange a hospital attendance.

Home visits are intended for patients who are house bound, terminally ill, or those too ill to travel to the surgery.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also much better facilities for examining and treating patients within the practice.
