Home visits are available only for those too ill to come to the surgery. Please note that visiting patients at home is very time consuming. We can see three or four patients in the surgery in the time it takes to see one person at home. It is often difficult to examine you properly at home. It is difficult to carry out tests and our surgery equipment is obviously not available. We can offer you a much better service if you come to the surgery. Receptionists have to ask certain questions on behalf of the doctors to assess a visit.
Many people ask for home visits because of a lack of transport. Please ask friends or family to help. We do have flexible appointments when many people have finished work and may be able to bring you. By making every effort to come to the surgery you help us greatly to provide a better service for all our patients.
