Home visits are available on request for patients who are housebound, terminally ill or too ill to come to the surgery. All requests for home visits will be assessed by a doctor.
At home the doctor will only have limited equipment and it is often difficult to perform a full assessment of your symptoms. It is therefore essential that if it is at all possible that you attend the surgery to see the doctor.
If you do need a home visit, please telephone 020 8648 2432 after 11:00 if possible. Please give the receptionist as much information as possible, so that the doctor can give your request due to priority.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice.
Calls are usually distributed geographically, unless a particular doctor is attending a particular patient, thus you may not necessarily be visited by your preferred doctor.
