HOW TO REQUEST A HOME VISIT BETWEEN: 8.00am & 6.00pm

On average, seeing you at home takes four times as long for the Doctor, as seeing you in the surgery. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.

contact usIf  however you are housebound because of illness or disability and require a home visit it would be most helpful to telephone the surgery before 10am. Visit requests after this time make it more difficult for the Doctors to plan their rounds and this may cause some delay.

A doctor or nurse may phone 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.
