To allow our Doctors and the home visiting team to spend more time with patients, home visits are prioritised for the terminally ill or housebound. However other health reasons will be considered.
We do encourage patients to make every effort to attend the practice. There is disabled parking and easy access to the surgery. Where possible we ask family members to make arrangements to bring in the elderly and the young. Please remember that up to six patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the surgery.
If you require a home visit please telephone between 8:30 and 10:00 am whenever possible as this helps your doctors/home visiting team to plan their rounds.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains / shortness of breath / collapse / serious injuries all constitute an emergency.
