How to Request a Home Visit

If you are too ill to attend the surgery, a Doctor will visit you at home at their discretion.

  • Home visits are not for common symptoms where patients are well enough to travel
  • Home visits are for the truly bed bound patient 
  • Please phone between 08.30–10.00whenever possible, to enable Doctors to plan their day
  • If the visit is urgent ensure that the receptionist is aware of this
  • Home visits are normally undertaken at anytime between midday and 14.00
  • You should not expect the doctor to arrive immediately following the end of morning surgery
  • The doctor will normally telephone prior to the visit to see if your concerns can be resolved without a visit
