Home visits are made at the discretion of the doctor. Please do not ask the doctor to call unless the patient is genuinely too ill to attend the surgery. Call 01933 650 593 before 10.30am to request a home visit on that day. The receptionist will ask for full patient details, telephone number and the reason for the visit. This information enables the doctors to plan their calls and allows urgent visits to be dealt with as soon as possible.
The doctor may telephone the patient to obtain more information and may ask the patient to come to the surgery. A request for a home visit does not necessarily mean that the doctor will visit. It is the doctor who decides what course of action is the most appropriate. It may be that the doctors feels it would be appropriate for you to come to the surgery or for you to be visited by our Advanced Nurse Practitioner.
