Home Visits

elderly_consultIf you require a home visit, please telephone the surgery before 10.30 a.m. on (01283) 563451 and give the receptionist some indication of the problem so that the doctor will know how urgent the visit is. To help you decide if a home visit may be appropriate please follow these guidelines:

GP visit recommended: When patient is terminally ill or truly housebound, i.e. unable to get to the shops.

Call 999: For suspected heart attack, sudden onset of chest pain, loss of consciousness or if having a fit for the first time.

GP visit is not usual: Common childhood complaints, fevers, cold, cough, earache, headache, diarrhoea/vomiting and most cases of abdominal pain. These patients are usually well enough to travel to the surgery. It is not harmful to take a child with fever outside. Adults with common problems, such as cough, sore throat, influenza, general malaise, back pain and abdominal pain are also readily transportable to the doctor's surgery.

 

Transport arrangements are the responsibility of the patients or their carers.
