Home Visits

We encourage all patients to visit the medical centre where we have a full range of facilities available to sort out your problems efficiently. Only housebound and bedridden patients will be visited unless there are exceptional circumstances. Our catchment area is about 1 mile radius of the Practice, if you live outside this area it would be most appropriate for you to register with a local Practice to you.

Decision to visit is made on clinical need rather than social circumstances. All requests for home visits should be made before 11 a.m., where possible. If you request a home visit we may direct you to call emergency services if this is appropriate or utilise the support of the community teams mentioned above (eg JET or the community respiratory team).
