Home visits are for those patients who are housebound or undergoing end-of-life care and are unable to travel to the Practice. In the time taken for the doctor to carry out a home visit they would be able to see 5 to 6 patients at the surgery. For this reason it is in the doctor’s and the patient’s best interest that whenever possible patient’s should attend the surgery.
Request’s for a home visit should be made before 10:00 am.
The GP may telephone you first to discuss your home visit request.
