Home visits

If you are too ill to attend surgery a home visit can be arranged. Please use the service thoughtfully and ring before 10.00am if possible. If you delay ringing until the afternoon, we cannot guarantee a visit on that day. The receptionist will ask for brief details of your problem and the duty G.P. may ring you back to determine the nature of your illness.

Please note that it will be the doctor(s) on visits that day who will call, not necessarily your preferred doctor. If you have moved address out of our area, and not advised us, we will not be able to make a home visit. A doctor can see four or five people in surgery in the time it takes for one home visit, so we ask please don’t request a vist unless you genuinely can’t get to surgery.
