    Home visits

    Please contact us before 11am if possible – home visits take up a lot of time for the duty clinician, so please help us by coming to an appointment at the medical centre where possible.

    Home visits are reserved for patients who are housebound or who have become too ill to travel to the medical centre.

    A doctor will usually telephone you to discuss your visit request – this is to make sure you receive the most appropriate response to your medical needs.

    Babies and children can often be brought safely to the surgery where they will be seen quickly. This includes those who may be infectious, who can be seen quickly in a side room.

    We regret that home visits cannot be undertaken because of patient transport problems – taxi and bus services are well provided locally.
