Home visits are intended for the housebound and those too ill to travel. If you require a home visit, please ring the surgery before 10.00am. Your call will be put through to the doctor, who will discuss your problem and decide on the necessity of the visit. You may well be requested to attend surgery as home visits are restricted to very elderly, disabled, or terminally ill patients. Remember we can see many patients in the surgery in the time an average home visit takes. Please try to come to the surgery whenever possible as we have better facilities for examination and treatment.
