Where possible we encourage our patients to come to the Practice where we have the proper equipment and facilities available to provide them with the best medical care. We do however, appreciate that this is not always possible. If you are housebound or too ill to attend the Practice and do require a home visit then please telephone Reception between 8:30am and 10:00am to request this.
The person requesting the visit should give the receptionist all the information that is asked for so the doctor can decide on the urgency of the call.
If you want a specific doctor to visit please tell the receptionist, but there is no guarantee. We cannot give you a specific time that the GP will call this may be between 8am and 6pm.
Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a home visit is required therefore the GP may contact you by telephone to discuss your symptoms.
We would ask that all pets are put in a separate room where possible, whilst the doctor is in your home. We also ask that you do not smoke during the GP visit.
