Home visits are solely allocated to those who are elderly or infirm and hence unable to get to the surgery.
Wherever possible doctors ask that patients be brought to the surgery for review where their complete medical records are accessible and there are better facilities to instigate thorough examination and treatment.
Inappropriate requests for home visits may be rejected.
All requests for home visits should be phoned in by 11.00am.
Patients should note that they are not guaranteed to see the doctor of their choice on home visits.
