To enable us to manage our home visits more effectively we will be joining the Home Visiting Service from April 2018.
If your condition prevents you attending the surgery and you require a home visit, please telephone the surgery as early as possible in the morning. Brief details given to the Receptionist help us to understand the urgency of your request. This information will then be forwarded to the Home Visiting Service Team who will then contact for further information and organise the appropriate person for the visit.
The facilities in the surgery are better for medical examination and treatment than in the home. Please do not therefore request a home visit unless the patient is too ill to leave the house.
Routine home visits are not compatible with the other demands of modern general practice.
