If a patient is medically unfit to attend surgery, the doctor may decide to visit them at home.
When you telephone for a home visit, the receptionist will ask what is wrong with the patient. This information helps us to decide who to visit first. Where possible, requests for home visits should be made before 10.00am to enable us to plan our work for the day.
On occasion a community nurse or paramedic may visit on behalf of the doctor.
