Home visits are made at the discretion of the Clinician.
If you request a home visit you will be passed to the Clinician who will ask for details as to why your condition requires a visit. They may decide it is more appropriate for you to be seen at the surgery. As you will appreciate, a visit to a patients home takes the doctor some time. We hope, in discussion with the patient or carer, to agree the most appropriate time and place for the patient to be seen.
If the patient has a temperature or rash, coming to the surgery will usually do no harm or endanger others, but please inform the receptionist on arrival if either or both of these conditions is present.
