Home Visits

Our routine home visits are done between 11.30 and 14.00.

We offer home visits for the genuinely housebound and the terminally ill. Wherever possible we prefer to see patients in surgery where we have better facilities for examination and treatment on hand.

If you require a home visit please make your request before 10.30 am giving the receptionist your name, address and telephone number with some indication of the nature and urgency of the problem.

Sometimes your doctor may assess the severity and nature of your condition over the telephone and decide that you should be seen in surgery or that you can receive treatment without being seen.

This is a normal part of modern general practice called triage and it ensures that you receive the most appropriate and expedient treatment for your condition.
