Home Visits

We provide a home visiting service for those patients who are too ill or too frail to attend the surgery. If you need a home visit please phone us before 10:30 (except in genuine emergencies) as this helps our doctors to plan their time efficiently.

For callers after this time it may not be possible to arrange a visit for that day.

Remember that the surgery is set up to assess patients and we have a much greater range of equipment available at the surgery, such as ECG machines, good lighting, resuscitation facilities and so on, than we can provide to patients in their homes. It may be impossible to examine someone properly at home.
