Home visits are reserved for those patients who are terminally ill or genuinely bedbound and unable to travel by car or taxi. Remember it takes a doctor approximately 40mins to do a home visit with travelling time
Do you think your probem could be dealt with over the phone?
If you think a home visit is necessary please phone the surgery before 10.00am as this will help us organise our day. The receptionist may ask for further details. This information is confidential and is required by the doctor to decide which calls should be given priority. Please leave a current phone number as the doctor may ring you back to discuss the visit request
