We offer home visits for patients who are genuinly housebound because of illness or disability.
Please try to telephone reception before 10:30am if you think you may require a home visit. We will take your details and ask a doctor to get in touch.
A doctor will phone you back to discuss the matter on the same day. We find that often problems can be safely managed with telephone advice, or it is much more appropriate to manage incidents by a arranging a district nurse visit or a hospital attendance rather than a home visit.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit which is why we fully explore all alternatives before confirming whether a visit will take place. We also have better facilities on-site for examining and treating patients.
