Home Visits

Home visits are made at the Doctor’s discretion on medical grounds. These are necessarily limited to those who are genuinely housebound as approximately five patients can be seen in surgery in the time that it takes to visit one patient at home.

Home visits are inferior to surgery consultations for most patients as we do not have access to full computer records and test results. In addition, access to proper lighting and some types of medical equipment is only available in surgery. For acutely ill patients, surgery is usually the safest and quickest way to be seen.

On the other hand, for frail elderly patients, those too ill to be moved or those who are terminally ill, comfort is often more important than speed or special equipment and we are very happy to make home visits in such circumstances. Please telephone surgery before 11 am for visits the same day, unless urgent.
