These are for patients who are genuinely unable, through illness or infirmity, to come to the Practice. Patients who do not have their own transport should use public transport or taxis, or request family or neighbours' assistance. A doctor may phone the patient to decide if a home visit is necessary. Please remember the Doctors can see three or four patients in the surgery in time it takes to do one home visit.
Telephone before 10.30am and give the receptionist the full details. Urgent home visits can be requested at any time and will be passed on to the duty doctor for assessment.
