Home visits must only be requested if you or a relative are too ill to attend the surgery. Request for home visits should be made as soon as possible in the morning. If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit.
Late calls are for emergencies only or to arrange a visit for another day. A clinician may ring you beforehand to discuss your needs.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
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 better facilities for examining and treating patients at the health centre.
