Home visits are solely for those patients who are too ill or infirm to attend the surgery. To request a home visit please try to telephone the surgery before 10:30am. This will help the doctors to plan their rounds. Please do not abuse this service. Remember that a doctor can see several patients at surgery in the time it may take to carry out one home visit. This means that the Doctor can use time more effectively and can also respond quickly to emergencies that may arise.
