Requests for home visits may be made by calling the surgery reception preferably before 10:00am. In general we ask that patients only request a home visit if they are genuinely housebound and too unwell to come to the surgery. If so, you will usually be visited by the doctor after morning surgery.
The computerised records and some pieces of medical equipment which are so helpful in modern general practice are only available at the surgery. In addition, your doctor can usually see several patients at the surgery in the time that it takes to make a single house call.
