How to Obtain a Home Visit

Whenever possible, please help us by coming to the surgery rather than requesting a visit. You will usually be seen sooner and the facilities available at the surgery make diagnosis and treatment simpler. Most patients now have easy access to transport, either their own or through friends and family, and there are few conditions that would worsen with a short car journey. 

If you are too ill or unable to come to the surgery, then please phone your request for a visit before 10:30 am. Should the situation arise later in the day when a visit is needed please contact the surgery as soon as possible so that the doctor can be alerted and deal with the situation as appropriate.

When requesting a visit you will be asked by the receptionist to give details of the problem. This is to prioritise and assess the urgency of the visit.
