If you require a home visit, please contact the surgery before 10.00am. Most home visits are for those too ill to attend the surgery. We are prepared to make non-urgent visits if the situation warrants it but, in general, we ask that patients only request a home visit if they are genuinely housebound and too unwell to come to the surgery.
The computerised records and some pieces of medical equipment which are so helpful in modern general practice are only available at the surgery.
Your doctor can usually see several patients at the surgery in the time that it takes to make a single housecall.
