- Home visits are for patients aged 65 years and over who are housebound.
- Home visits are for patients who have a disability and cannot attend the surgery due to their disability.
We encourage patients to attend the surgery as we can see four patients in the surgery in the time it takes to do one visit to a patients home. Please ring before 11:00 am for an urgent home visit and speak to the Receptionist who will put your call through to the Practice Manager to deal with any urgent requests or the receptionist will take a message for the GP on duty to ring you back after the morning clinic and deal with your request appropriately. Home visits are for patients who are too ill to attend surgery. Do not ask visits for trivial reasons i.e. cold, or ask for a visit because there is no transport to get the surgery.
Kindly note that home visits are by request and not on demand!
