Our doctors will always encourage patients to come into the surgery because this is where the best care can be provided.
The doctors only have access to your full medical records at the surgery. Specialist equipment is here, examinations and tests can be carried out more easily, and some conditions can only be treated at the surgery.
Our doctors will only visit a patient at home when the patient is unable to attend the surgery due to illness or disability.
In the time it takes to visit one person at home the doctor can see three or four patients at the surgery.
For these reasons, if you request a home visit, the doctor may call you back to find out more about your problem before deciding whether to come out.
Please help us to help you, by coming to the surgery to see the doctor if you are able to do so.
