Home visits are available on request for patients who are housebound, terminally ill or too ill to come to the surgery. All requests for home visits will be assessed and it is for the Doctor to decide if a home visit is appropriate. Assessment will be based on medical grounds, problems with transport are not a valid reason for requesting a home visit.
At home the doctor will only have limited equipment and it is often difficult to perform a full assessment of your symptoms. It is therefore essential that if it is at all possible you should attend the Surgery to see the doctor.
If you do need a home visit, call 01785 712300 before 11am. Please give the receptionist as much information as possible so that the doctor can give your request due priority.
Visits are usually distributed geographically unless a particular doctor is attending a particular patient, therefore you may not necessarily be visited by your preferred doctor.
