Visits are only for patients who are not physically able to attend the surgery due to illness or disability.
Doctors will always encourage people to come into the surgery because this is where the best care can be provided. Specialist equipment is there, tests can be carried out more easily and drugs issued if necessary.
It is recognised good practice to have systems in place to triage and prioritise home visits.
Please ring before 10:00 am when possible if you require a home visit, so a doctor or a nurse will contact you back to arrange a visit if necessary.
