Home visits take up a great deal of the doctors’ time and should only be reserved for patients who are medically unable to attend the surgery. Transport problems will not be accepted as a reason for the doctor to attend you at home. By attending the surgery the doctor has the necessary specialist equipment available to examine you, with the help of other health to register professionals if necessary.
No patient in definite need of a home visit will be refused.
If you need to request a home visit, please try and ring before 10:00, enabling the doctor to call after the morning surgery.
