Home Visits

  • Wherever possible you will be asked and expected to attend the surgery
  • Home visits are for those who are truly housebound, bedbound or whose medical condition makes it inappropriate to attend the surgery
  • Home visits are arranged at the doctor’s discretion
  • The doctor will decide if you need a home visit or to be reviewed in an alternative way
  • The facilities at the surgery are much better for examination and the doctor has access to all your medical records
  • To request a home visit please do so before before 10:30 by telephone on 01372 726361. Be prepared to give details of your problem
  • Home visits should not be requested because you have no transport
  • You may be contacted by a doctor and asked to attend the surgery if this is thought more appropriate
