The Doctors will visit the housebound, the very elderly and terminally ill patients at home if there is a medical need for a home visit. Please tell the surgery as soon as possible that day if you think a home visit is needed, ideally before 10.30am. The Doctor will then decide where it is best to see you.
For instance babies and children with fever, diarrhoea, vomiting, earache or a rash should be brought to the surgery and seen quickly. Adults with similar illnesses can also be seen quicker at the surgery.
Home visits will be made only on medical grounds and not on social grounds (such as lack of transport). Please remember 6 patients can be seen in the surgery in the time it takes to do 1 home visit.
