Home Visits

Some patients are too frail or unwell to travel to the surgery even for routine care. In such cases, please call the surgery to let us know that a visit may be required.
Please note that we discourage home visits for anything other than terminal care or medical emergencies.

Home visits are a poor use of GP time, meaning less time for other patients, it is difficult to provide high quality modern health care outside the surgery, and there is a higher risk of medical errors.

Visits are therefore only carried out where the GP decides that a visit is clinically justified.
