How to Request a Home Visit

If you’re unable to get to the Surgery because you are housebound, you can telephone 01989 763535 to enquire about a home visit.

Please remember home visits are for medical, not social or personal reasons. Lack of transport is NOT an acceptable reason for a visit request and we advise that children should be brought into to the surgery.

 Except in an emergency home visits MUST be requested before 11.00am. This enables the doctors to do their visits after morning surgery.  Requests after midday are unlikely to be possible due to existing doctor’s clinics.

A doctor or nurse may telephone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the Surgery in the time that it takes to make one home visit. We also have better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Surgery.
