Home Visits are at the doctor’s discretion. Patients are requested to phone before 10.00am if a visit is required that day.
Please give the receptionist as much information as possible to enable the doctor to allocate priority to home visits. Sometimes, the doctor may ask a district nurse to make an assessment in the first place.
Home visits at any time should not be requested just because you don’t want to lose time from work, or do not have a car
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the time it takes to do a home visit.
Violent, aggressive, abusive or threatening behaviour towards the practice doctors, staff or persons visiting the surgery will not be tolerated. Involvement in situations such as this may result in the offender being removed from the practice list.
