Please remember that home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
If possible please try to telephone reception before 11am if you require a home visit. Except in exceptional circumstances, home visits will be done between 2pm and 4pm.
When you request a home visit, a doctor or nurse may phone you back to discuss the options available.It may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
Please remember that several 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 Practice.
