I think I need a home visit how can I arrange this?

Home visits are usually for patients who are completely housebound such as terminally ill patients or patients who are very frail and elderly and too unwell to come to the Surgery.

If you usually go for appointments to your dentist, optician or go out shopping or to the hairdressers with transport by a relative or friend or by public transport or taxi then you would not normally be eligible for a home visit unless you are very unwell in an emergency.

If your child or you have a temperature or a rash, please call the surgery in advance and let us know but coming to the Surgery will do no harm or endanger others. It is appreciated if patients can attend Surgery if at all possible.

Appointments at the surgery are usually quicker for the patient, and we have better facilities to treat you such as better equipment or additional tests we can do at the practice.

If you think you need a home visit them please telephone the Surgery before 10:30am. on the day you need your visit and give the Receptionist as much information as possible, so that the Doctor can give the request appropriateĀ  priority.

A doctor or nurse may call you back to see if your problem can be dealt with over the telephone. If appropriate you may be visited by a nurse instead of a doctor to visit you or we may arrange a district nurse to visit you instead. If we feel the medical problem is urgent we may call 999 or arrange a hospital attendance for you.
