Home Visits

Doctor's bag

Home visits are at the discretion of the doctors. When the condition of the patient suggests that a home visit may be required please contact the surgery before 11.30 where possible, on telephone number
01381 622000.

Home visits are for people who are genuinely too ill to visit the surgery. A rash or a temperature does not prevent patients coming to the surgery and will not endanger others. In the time it takes a doctor to do a single house call, four patients can be seen in surgery, which is also well-staffed and better equipped.

The receptionist will ask you what the problem is, as this helps the doctors to prioritise calls. You will also be asked for a telephone number at which you can be contacted as a doctor may call you back.
