Home Visits

We can only offer home visits in exceptional circumstances.  This includes where a patient is housebound and therefore never leaves their home, or because the person is so unwell it is not possible for them to travel to the surgery.

The reason for this is that we have greater access to your medical records, blood test results and diagnostic equipment at the surgery and therefore medical issues are more efficiently dealt with there.

If you do request a home visit a doctor might contact you by telephone beforehand to discuss your problem so as to organise the most appropriate assessment for you.
