Home visits are available, by arrangement, only for patients who are housebound, terminally ill or too ill to come to the surgery.
Seeing you at the health centre means that you have the best facilities for examination and treatment. If you do require a home visit be prepared for the receptionist to take some brief details of your problem, including telephone number.
If possible, please request home visits before 10.30am. We do recognise that emergencies can happen.
The doctor can see 5 patients at the surgery in the time it takes to visit 1 patient at home. At home the doctor will only have limited equipment and it is often difficult to perform a full assessment of your condition. It is therefore essential that if it is at all possible that you attend the surgery to see the doctor.
