Home visits are carried out for housebound patients and those who cannot come to the surgery for medical reasons
Please do not ask the doctor to make a home visit if you are well enough to come to the surgery. In general most consultations are best carried out in the surgery and, in particular, visits for children should rarely be necessary.
If you request a home visit you should give a full description of the patients’ condition to the receptionist so that the doctor can judge if a home visit is necessary, and can assess its’ urgency.
Only the doctor can assess if a home visit is necessary.
All requests for home visits should be made by telephoning 028 3752 1500 before 10.30am.
Emergency visits only will be arranged after that time.
