Home visits are for those patients who are housebound or when the medical condition of the ill person is such that attendance at the surgery is not possible. Requests for home visits should be made before 10.30am whenever possible.
The surgery has a team of experienced paramedic practitioners who work closely with the doctors to care for our housebound patients.
As qualified paramedics they are clinically able to assess patients in the home to evaluate medical conditions and social problems and to take appropriate action.
It should be noted that there are better facilities for diagnosis and treatment at the surgery. We triage every visit request and will ask you to attend the surgery if at all possible.
