Home Visits


Home visits on weekdays should be requested by telephoning the practice on 01620 825497 between 8.00am and 10.30am whenever possible. 


Home visits use up our most valuable resource - time -and should only be requested when the patient is unfit to attend the surgery where we have better examination and treatment facilities.  If in doubt please ask to speak with the duty doctor.


When you request a home visit the receptionist will ask you for:

  • Patients full name and date of birth
  • Patients home address and the address to be visited if different
  • Contact telephone number
  • Brief details of illness or reason for home visit

This information is required to help the doctor plan and prioritise the home visits and will be treated in confidence. 

A doctor or nurse may well 'phone back to discuss your call.


Note that we do not have a policy of automatic home visits to patients discharged from hospital unless the hospital or patient requests a review of the clinical condition.  Please arrange for any hospital letter to be passed to us.
