Home Visits are only for housebound and terminally ill patients.
Other patients (including children) must come to the surgery as we have better facilities for examining and treating you there.
If you think you require a home visit pleas request this before 10.30 am wherever possible (01506 636300 option 2). A Doctor may call you to discuss your request.
When you request a home visit the receptionist will ask you for:
- Patients full name;
- Patients home address and address to be visited if different;
- Contact telephone number;
- Name of patients own GP;
- Brief details of illness or reason for home visit.
This information is required to help the doctor plan and prioritise the home visits and will be treated in confidence. The doctor may well ‘phone back to discuss your call.
