The doctors do carry out home visits for patients who are housebound/ fail and elderly who are more vulnerable. We ask you to call before 10.30 to arrange this so that we can assess the need for a visit the same day. However, this is at the doctor’s discretion and they may wish to assess your situation over the telephone and advise you appropriately. It is always better for the doctor to assess you in the surgery, where your full medical records and diagnostic equipment are available, which leads to a better service to yourself.
To request a home visit, please:
- Call the surgery on 024 76 266370 before 10.30am to arrange.
- Be prepared to tell the receptionist about your condition so we can prioritise the most urgent cases and arrange the most appropriate course of action.
- Ensure the surgery has up to date details of your address and telephone number.
Home visits are not emergency services and it should not be a regular occurrence that a visit is requested the same day.
