Home Visits

Please telephone reception on 01483 409309 before 11:00 if you require a home visit.

Home visits are only available to patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.

An individual is not housebound if they are able to leave their home with minimal assistance to visit, for example, neighbours, hairdresser, supermarket, bingo.

A doctor may phone you back to confirm that a visit is necessary. In some cases telephone advice may be sufficient, or a different plan may be more appropriate.

Doctors can see several patients in the time it takes to make a home visit and there are better facilities for examining and treating patients in our surgeries.
