Home Visits

Requesting a home visit

Whenever possible you will be asked to attend the surgery due to the equipment and facilities present within the building that are not accessible during home visits. Where this is not possible and is more suitable for the patient to be seen at home, we can send out a doctor to perform basic observations and refer on to the community for any further care at home. 

Home visits are only justified on medical grounds. Requests for non-emergency home visits should be made as early in the day as possible as this helps the doctors to prioritise the order of their home visits. Telephone the surgery on 01795 430444.

Requests for a home visit will be triaged by a GP.
