Home Visits

 

Home visits on weekdays should be requested by telephoning the practice on 01292 886622 before 10.00am if possible. This helps the doctors to plan their rounds.

 

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 the receptionist if you can speak with a 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.

 

You should consider calling 999 for an ambulance in the following circumstances:- sudden onset of chest pain, collapse, possible stroke, head injury or any significant injury.
