Home visits are for those patients who are too unwell or who are elderly and too frail to leave the house. Home visits should be notified to the surgery before 11.00am. Patients requesting a home visit may first be telephoned for an initial assessment. The Dr will then make a clinical judgement on whether the home visit is necessary.
Please bear in mind that the doctor can see several patients in the surgery in the time it takes to make a home visit.
