Home Visitslogo

Home visits are for patients who are too ill or infirm to come to the surgery.

Please telephone the surgery before 10:00am on the day of the visit and give the Receptionist as much information as possible, so that the Doctor can give the request appropriate priority.

A Clinician will usually ring you back before visiting.

If a patient has a temperature or a rash, coming to the surgery will do no harm or endanger others. It is appreciated if patients can attend surgery if at all possible. This is usually quicker for the patient and makes the best use of the Doctor’s time.

The large geographical area of the Practice means that you may not necessarily be seen by your own GP.

Emergencies

During Surgery hours an emergency is a medical problem that needs attention within 30 minutes. After hours it is a medical problem that cannot wait until the surgery opens.
