It is clinically better for you to be seen at the surgery where we have better facilities, diagnostic aids and lighting to assess you. Our doctors typically see four patients in the time it takes to do a single home visit.
Home visits are for housebound patients and for those too ill to attend the surgery. Home visits are not for those who do not have transport.
If you need a home visit please contact the surgery before 10:30am if possible and give one of our receptionists details to enable a doctor to judge whether a home visit is appropriate and the urgency of your needs. A paramedic visiting service has been employed to carry out the home visits, where appropriate. If the doctor does not deem it appropriate for the paramedic to carry out the home visit, they will do this visit instead.
