Home Doctor visits
Home visits should only be requested for those who are unable to come to the Surgery because of serious illness and infirmity. They should be requested between 8.00am to 11.00am if at all possible.
The TRIAGE TEAM will ask you for a brief indication of the problem so that the visiting Doctor can attend the most urgent problems first. Please note that, due to the wide geographical area covered by the Practice, there is no guarantee that the Doctor of your choice will be the one who actually visits. Home visits are carried out in the afternoon.
Whenever possible we prefer to see you at the Practice. If you do not feel well enough to sit in the waiting room, we can make alternative arrangements and allocate an alternative room for you to wait in.
What is Patient Access?

- Book new appointments without having to phone.
