If you are unable to come into the surgery and require a GP to visit you at home please contact reception on 01254 287070 as soon as possible, and if possible before 10.00am.
Appropriate reasons for a home visit would include a bedbound patient, those patients who are terminally ill and those patients that would come to serious harm if moved.
Home visits are NOT suitable for patients who cannot come to the surgery because of a lack of money or transport, children, young people or anyone that is mobile, social reasons or for the convenience of a home visit, or if you are able to attend other appointments with no problems (i.e. hairdressing appointments).
Patients do not have an automatic right to a home visit and doctors are required to consider home visits for medical reasons only.
All visit requests will be medically assessed to check for their appropriateness.
It is always preferable where possible to attend the surgery as patients can be seen more promptly with better facilities.
