Home visits

Home visits are for those who are housebound or too ill to get out of bed. If you need a visit please telephone before 10.30am. Please be ready to give some details to the medical secretary so that the doctor may assess whether a visit is necessary, and the degree of urgency.

Many people who ask for a home visit do not need one. A problem with transport is not a reason to request a home visit. Small children are best seen at the surgery, even when carried; bringing a child out with a temperature rarely causes any harm.

The computerised records and some pieces of medical equipment which are so helpful in modern general practice are only available at the surgery.

Your doctor can usually see several patients at the surgery in the time that it takes to make a single housecall.
