Home Visits


Home visits are restricted to our housebound patients & to those who are otherwise physically unable to attend the Surgery.

To arrange a home visit, please contact your Usual Doctor’s Secretary via our automated phone service, using option 3 on the menu. Please contact us by 11am to request a visit in order for us to make arrangements with your Usual Doctor. Please be aware that we are unable to guarantee which Doctor will visit for any requests made after 11am. The Secretary will advise you which Doctor your request has been passed to after this time.

The Secretary will take further information from you & the reason you require a home visit & pass this on to your Doctor.

Please note, all of our Doctor’s are not in Surgery 5 days a week, therefore should the Doctor you are requesting be unavailable, we will advise you & inform you when your Doctor is available. if you are unable to wait until his time we will pass your request to another Doctor available that day. All home visit requests are reviewed by the Doctors & sometimes a home visit may not be necessary but could be better dealt with over the telephone.
