Home visits will be made, if required, for housebound patients and those who are terminally ill. The vast majority of patients, including children, will be expected to attend the surgery unless they are too ill to leave the house. If a home visit is required please ring the practice before 11.00 am and one of the healthcare team will telephone you back initially to assess the urgency of your need.
Home visits take a long time (we can often see 3 or 4 patients at the surgery in the time it takes for 1 home visit) and we would appreciate your coming to the surgery if you can. The receptionist will ask you for some idea of your symptoms to enable the doctors to judge the urgency of your call and the need for any special equipment.
