Home Visits

Telephone 01202 525252

home_visitPlease remember that home visiting is very time-consuming for the doctor. Up to 12 patients can be seen in surgery during the time the doctor can visit 2 or 3 patients.

Home visits are therefore only advisable when the medical condition of the ill person is such that attendance at surgery is not possible. When the medical condition does not prevent travel please make every effort to attend the surgery.

The doctors organise their work and allocate their visits at 11.00 am. Please call before then if a visit is anticipated. Late calls would therefore all go to a Duty Doctor who will be starting a surgery at 3.30 pm. Late requests for visits can thus compromise the service and lead to delay. Visits are usually performed between 12.30 pm and 3.00 pm.
