Patients are asked to request home visits before 10.30am for visits that day. Late calls are for emergencies only, or to arrange a visit for another day.
In line with current medical practice we have a policy of visiting patients whose medical condition would be worsened by transport to the surgery. Visits cannot be undertaken because of transport, financial difficulty, weather conditions or childcare concerns.
The medical centre is better equipped for medical examinations and your GP can attend four or five patients in the time taken for one home visit.
