FAQs >> House Calls
Can I book a house call?
When you ring the surgery requesting a house call, your information is passed directly to your GP. They will then assess your request. Our reception team will call you back to make arrangements for the visit to your home or come to the surgery if the doctor felt this was more appropriate. Please contact the surgery as early as possible in the morning to request a house call so that your doctor can make the visit during the lunchtime period.
When is a house call appropriate?
Please remember that most problems are best dealt with in the surgery where we have a full range of equipment. It is practice policy for receptionists to ask if there is any possibility of the patient attending the surgery. House calls will be made to patients who suffer from lack of mobility or those who are seriously ill.
