Home visits should be seen as a privilege and not an entitlement. Except for emergencies, requests for visits should be considered carefully before contacting the surgery.
Housebound patients and others with exceptional circumstances should contact the surgery before 10.30am to request a home visit.
The clinician involved may contact you by telephone to discuss the nature of your problem before arranging the visit.
Please note that lack of transport cannot be accepted as a reason for a home visit, nor does the Practice provide transport services
