We visit housebound patients who are unable to leave their house. If you feel you need a doctor to visit you at home please aim to telephone before 10.30am. If you ring after this time it may be difficult to accommodate your request.
Home visits take approximately 4 times as long as seeing a patient in the surgery and assessments are often more difficult as we do not have all the equipment to hand that is available at the surgery. All requests for home visits will therefore be assessed by the emergency doctor who will call you to discuss the request. You may be asked to attend the surgery or another alternative might be suggested.
