Our Doctors can normally see at least 4 patients in the time it takes to do a single home visit.
Consulting at the surgery allows access to computerised records, equipment and nursing staff all of which make consultations more effective, thorough and safer.
For these reasons we ask our patients to come to the Practice if at all possible.
As a general rule we would prefer not to visit children at home, as in most circumstances they can be brought to the surgery.
In addition only the very ill or incapacitated should really require a visit at home.
Urgent visit requests will be passed to the Duty Doctor.
