Home visits are made for medical reasons only to the genuinely housebound and those patients with serious illness who may be at risk if they travel. Requests should be made before 11.00 am but in the event of an emergency please contact 999 without any delay.
All home visit requests are reviewed by the on call doctor prior to the visit. Lack of transport is not considered a valid reason for a home visit.
Please remember that patient care is best dealt with at the surgery as a doctor has access to full medical records and facilities for examination and treatment.
