Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible.
We will of course visit patients at home when it is medically necessary, but it is in everyone’s best interest that this service is reserved only for those who are too ill or infirm to be brought to the surgery.
In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:00am.
Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Our highly trained receptionists will need to take a few details in confidence about what is wrong. This helps us to decide which visits are most urgent and also which person in the practice team would be most appropriate to make the visit.
